Conroe City Council Mayor Toby Powell and the Council met Margie Shelton, who was rescued during Imelda, at their regular meeting on Dec. 12. During the storm, Shelton inadvertently drove into high water, and the water was up to her chin before the Conroe Fire Department came to her rescue.
Shelton met her rescuers at the meeting, and thanked all of them for saving her life. She told them that she truly believes she would not be here today had God not sent her help.
At the meeting, Mayor Powell and the entire Council congratulated the Fire Department and the crew that saved Shelton.
