Some residents had to be rescued by boat Wednesday night after a Waco RV park flooded following a day of heavy rain.

The Waco Fire Department responded to the Waco RV Park at 7224 East Highway 6.

Waco Assistant Fire Chief Chris Pechacek said the park flooded after water from a nearby creek began to rise.

One of the RVs was actually moved by the floodwaters.

Nine residents had to be rescued, but no injuries were reported.

Texas Task Force 1, the McLennan County Sheriff's office and Game Wardens assisted.

The Red Cross was also on hand and took displaced residents to a hotel in Bellmead.

According to Sheriff's officials, this RV Park has a history of similar incidents due to flooding.

By Thursday morning, the water was gone.
