(KMOV) -- Hundreds of residents were evacuated from a Festus mobile home park due to flooding Thursday afternoon.

Police say no one was injured when high flood waters forced 200 residents to evacuate from the Lakeside Manor Mobile Home Park.

Water covered the roads and was lapping almost to people's front doors.

One man actually waded back through the water to pick up his dog still in his home. He had to leave a cat and the rest of his belongings behind.

The displaced families were taken to a nearby school. Authorities say two families chose not to evacuate.
