SPOKANE — Leone Browning, 94, was upstairs in her Spangle home Wednesday evening when her son yelled up to her that she had to get out within five minutes.

It was the second time in three weeks that floodwater forced her out of the house, one of five adjacent homes inundated by floodwaters in Spangle on Wednesday and Thursday.
