A family in the Glennville area was rescued by deputies from their flooded property near Poso Creek on Wednesday, the Kern County Sheriff's Office reported.

The flooding had washed out a portion of Poso Creek Road, leaving the family stranded and unable to leave their home for supplies.

Senior Deputy Reed Lovan was able to set up a rope and pulley system to rescue the family members as well as send them emergency supplies, officials said Thursday.
