A Tennessee woman was killed by rushing floodwaters right after she used Facebook Live to update family and friends, the Washington Post reported.

“We are being flooded right now,” Linda Almond, 55, said as floodwaters rushed past her window in Waverly, Tennessee. “Really scary.”

Almond was swept out of the house by floodwaters moments after the video was taken, the Washington Post reported. She held on to a utility pole, but died sometime after letting go, her daughter confirmed early Tuesday.

At least 22 people have died, and another 50 are still missing, due to the flooding in the Waverly region of Tennessee, about 60 miles from Nashville. An estimated 21 inches of rain fell within hours, starting around 9 a.m. Saturday.

Almond’s daughter Victoria told the Washington Post her mother was living with her son for a few months to save money for a car.
