The Columbia Fire Department rescued a woman from her house near Northland Drive and Argyle Road on Friday morning after being trapped by flood waters. Her name was not available.

COLUMBIA — A woman was rescued from her house in the 3000 block of Northland Drive on Friday morning after being trapped by flood waters. 

"I've lived here my whole life, and I've never seen it get like this," said Stephanie Key, who lives in Haden Park, a mobile home community off Northland Drive.

John Metz, a Columbia Fire Department public information officer, said that as of early Friday morning, only the woman on Northland had required help from the department. Her name was not available.

Jason Kane, a resident of the trailer park, said he noticed the flood waters around 8:30 a.m. when they surged over the top of the road.

Kane said a tree fell, causing debris  to get caught under the bridge, making the flooding worse.
