I grew up in Louisiana, and my mom took my brother and I up north after Hurricane Katrina. We were left in our house for about two days without any water or food and we were stuck in an attic. It took us busting through the roof of the house and getting on top for people to realize that we were up there. We decided that ADT Baton Rouge was a good thing to have when the house had electricity, but after the house went under water we did not realize that we did not have any support from the call center. I was going to try to call for help but we needed some electricity to be able to speak to the call center and we did not have any. I was really sad that I realized that we were not going to be able to call for help using our new security system. We had just had it installed about four days before the storm.
My husband told me that we were going to have an easy time finding someone to help us, but I told him that we were going to have to go to the attic after the second story of our house started to take on water. He told me after it hit our knees that he thought it was going to stop but I told him that there was no way that the water was going to stop coming up. The tide still had to come in and I knew that once it hit high tide later that night that we were going to be into some even bigger trouble. The people that we heard yelling for help that night made us so scared that we stayed in the attic until we had to bust out the next day.
