An elderly couple was rescued by Border Patrol agents after their van got stuck in flood waters.

Ruben Lopez Garcia says he was driving on Mexico Boulevard, with his wife, when he drove through the flooded street and his van stalled in the middle of the flood waters. Border Patrol agents in the area rescued the couple from the stalled van and the street was blocked off to other motorist with barricades. Law enforcement is urging drivers to avoid areas with high water levels on the road.
