Last night my sister Kim and brother Jeff were caught in a flash flood while camping in Havasupai. Miraculously, they survived with no injuries. Jeff climbed a tree to get away from the rushing waters from the broken dam and hung on for dear life for 5 hours until being rescued. Here is a video of Jeff being interviewed by KSL. I am so grateful they are safe! I haven't talked to either of them yet and I'm looking forward to hearing the whole story. It really is a miracle.

Oh my gosh.

Wow. I don't know what else to say, other than I'm so happy they are alright. What an incredibly terrifying adventure. I watched the news piece on KSL and could hear the trauma in your brother's voice. I'm so thankful for a happy ending.
