The footage shows several felled trees throughout the property that was covered in floodwaters.

Oakland is less than 20 miles from Orlando, which is experiencing “historic flooding,” officials say.

People rushed to the graveyard Thursday in hopes their loved ones weren’t washed away by Hurricane Ian.

“Right now, it’s a lot. It’s kinda hard to really believe,” said one man. He had rushed to the scene to make sure his grandmother, who was only buried last Tuesday, hadn’t been one of those washed away.

The unidentified man said his uncle was supposed to be buried at the cemetery Saturday but doesn’t foresee the service happening anytime soon considering the floods.

“I was born and raised in Oakland and unfortunately this is happening,” the man said.
