Man Returns Home to Find Wife’s Engagement Ring in Floodwaters
Michael Brown and his family were badly affected by Hurricane Harvey and when he went back to his home to see the damage, he found his wife’s engagement ring inside a jewelry box floating in the floodwaters.
Brown is just one of the thousands of people who are coming back to their homes after evacuation to survey his property and retrieve usable belongings.
In a video of Brown’s visit, you can see him rummaging through their possessions that were all floating in almost waist-high floodwaters.
It was at this time that he noticed a jewelry box that contained his wife’s engagement ring. Though unexpected, it was a pleasant surprise to find the ring amidst the chaos in the house.
Brown, may have lost almost all his possessions but he learned how to appreciate the most important things in life like family and good health.
“My family’s fine, nobody’s hurt,” Brown said. “That’s the main thing because I think all this material stuff can be replaced,” he added.
Brown and his family, like many others who were directly affected by the storm, still have a lot on their plate even after clean-up and the rebuilding process. The experience will undoubtedly leave physical and mental health concerns later.
Nonetheless, the family man shared that he is trying to maintain a healthy and positive attitude amidst all that happened to him and his family.
Hurricane Harvey was the first hurricane to make a landfall in the United States after more than a decade. It was described as the wettest tropical hurricane on record in the contiguous U.S. as it rained heavily for four days causing massive floods and displacement of over 300,000 people.
The impact of this hurricane is second to the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 with an estimated economic cost to over a $100 billion.
