They Had a Plan
Greg Smith explained to PEOPLE that despite being new to Texas, and hurricanes, he and his wife had a plan to get her to the hospital before flood waters got too high.
On Saturday night Greg said there was only light rain and no accumulation, so the couple had planned to head to the hospital on Sunday morning.
“I expected there would be five or six inches that I could drive through,” Greg says. “I woke up to two or three feet. We soon realized, we were kind of stuck,” the expectant father explained.
Andrea’s contractions were coming regularly at this point, so the couple knew they had to have a plan, especially since they couldn’t get through to any emergency services.
“I knew I would have to do this myself,” Greg says.
