AP, Hildale, Utah:  “A van and SUV carrying three women and 13children sat near the widening stream, waiting for the water to recede so theycould cross back to their homes in a small, polygamous town on the Utah-Arizonaborder.”  But the waters rose, and as seen in a cell-phone video theirvehicles were swept backwards down the stream. A later scene shows some women in pioneer dress (and male firstresponders) helping other similarly-dressed women out of the van.  One female observer can be heard crying out “Ohmy goodness!  Oh dear!”; another exclaims“Oh dear!”.  Strong language from apostate Latter Day Saints of Hildale, Utah.  (The town of Hildale is acenter of the polygamist Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-DaySaints, whose former president is the notorious felon Warren Jeffs, sentencedto life plus 20 years in Texas.)
