It was a frightening Saturday afternoon for some folks in Buncombe County.

Flash flooding nearly washed away a mobile home park in Fletcher. People who live at the Willis Mobile Home Park say a small creek running through their community swelled in just a few minutes. They say it turned into a raging river that threatened to flood nearby homes and cars.

"I feel fortunate I wasn't flooded," said resident Tammy Gasperson. "I've been flooded out before and water does terrible damage."

Gasperson says the water began to recede before it ruined any property. She says she'll be keeping an eye on the creek and the weather forecast.
