In a short amount of time, three or more inches of rain fell across Douglas County, leaving areas around Ava flooded.
Sheriff Chris Degase says troopers used a boat to save a couple from their flooded mobile home, but ran into trouble.
Bystanders jumped into the rushing water and saved the woman from getting tangled in barbed wire. Also a bus driver got stuck between two rising creeks.
The driver and four kids have been camped out at a nearby house - watching TV and eating cinnamon rolls.
