"It sounded like a 747 coming down the hill," said Vickie Reay.
For the fourth time since the Quail Fire Reay and her family watched as a wall of water, blackened by soil, rock and other debris came right for their home.
"It was just like a roaring," explained Reay. "It was just evil, evil on wheels coming down."
The retaining wall that the state put up three days before the first-ever flood did its job keeping the water from entering the Reay's home.
"You wouldn't have ever known there was a wall there," said Reay. "You couldn't have seen it at all. I mean the wall saved the house. If it wasn't for the wall it would have been gone the first time."
The same can not be said for the canal and debris basin that were easily overrun by the flood waters.
Reay said, "It's about 60 feet deep, 120 feet wide and 180 feet in width and it's nothing but rock. You wouldn't even know it was there now."
Now crews are trying to get that canal cleared back out in time for more flooding that's expected this week. They're getting help from hundreds of volunteers. Residents of Alpine got text messages from the city asking for their help in Sunday's cleanup effort.
One volunteer told ABC 4 Utah, "It's really awesome to live in a community that all comes together and when you get texts from the city asking you for help you see hundreds of people. It's a good feeling."
From clearing the street of mud and rock to filling and placing sandbags, the volunteers worked around the clock to clean up the mess and help ensure Vickie and her family don't her anymore damage anytime soon.
"It's really overwhelming," said Reay. "If you had to live someplace you couldn't live in a better place."
