MEMPHIS, Tn. -- More than 100 people are in a  Memphis shelter after a flood forced them out of their homes. 

The flooding overtook a mobile home community in Whitehaven Sunday. 

The Red Cross set up a make-shift shelter at a nearby community center. 

Rescue crews had to save seven families who were stuck in their mobile homes. 

One mobile home park owner compared the appearance of the flooding to that of a broken dam. 

The park has about 300 homes and more than half are damaged.
