Houston family's home saved from flooding thanks to dam

One Texas family has escaped the worst of Harvey's flooding thanks to an ingenious dam. 

Randy and Jennifer Socha's home in Rosenberg, Texas suffered severe flooding last year, so when they heard that Harvey was on its way, they knew they needed to get inventive to keep their home dry. 

Randy heard about a company that makes water-filled dams from some rice farmers in El Campo, Texas. 

The Aqua Dam is a fabric tube that is filled with water to be used as a barricade. Any water that leaks in is then pumped out.
