"Rebuilding after the floods"
Serenity Bamberger, right, leans on her sister Cielo Bamberger outside of their new house in Blanco, Texas on October 27, 2015. This was the first night that they began living in their new home since its completion. Three days later, the same river that destroyed their first house flooded their property again with several feet of water. Because their new house is high off the ground, the Bambergers and their belongings survived.
