VIDEO: The Crescent at Lakeshore Apartment Complex is bordered by Shades Creek but after a recent deluge, it became more like a river and people had to be rescued by boat.
Firefighters had to hand over life jackets and help residents here hop into a boat along with their pets and whatever they could carry to get to higher ground.
“I do know we have brought out 13 people by boat so far,” Brandon Broadhead, Battalion Chief at Homewood Fire told WBRC.
Many people got out before their first floor apartments filled with water as Shades Creek rose. It has happened before at this complex, as recently as February 2020 also requiring rescues.
“One of my roommates’ car got flooded last year, the entire interior was completely flooded,” one resident said.
Today, after the creek rose multiple feet, residents were just happy to get out safely, including a local student and her dogs.

Former Alabama football player Landon Dickerson is headed to the Philadelphia Eagles, but before he takes off for preseason training camp, he’s giving back to the City of Tuscaloosa.
Landon Dickerson knows what it takes to get the job done on the football field, but says nothing compares to what first responders do on a daily basis.
“They put themselves in harms way and all they want to do is help other people, I have the utmost respect for those people,” said Dickerson.
Tuesday was International Firefighters Day and Landon, who teamed up with Academy Sports and Outdoors, surprised dozens of firefighters in Tuscaloosa with a $500 check to help buy supplies and gear.
“You can’t find people who have this kind of personality, that want to help other people. They’re special people and they’re a necessity and I’m extremely appreciative of them every day,” said Dickerson. “My mom is a nurse and my dad spent 30 years in fire and rescue. I’m so thankful for them.”
