    I'm amazed at how many people drive into floodwaters and then get into difficulties.
    story of a woman driver a few years back who drove into a flooded ford, her husband was washed away and drowned and she was only saved by a guy who risked his own life to drag her out of the car to safety. I just dont understand people!

      My dad was a retired Navy Chief. Had three ships sunk out from under him during ww2. He could not swim a stroke but he knew where every flotation device was kept.

    Good video and like LW I don't understand people driving into clear and obvious road floods.

    Sometimes people try to cross a section of road or bridge that has flood waters flowing over it. Don't do that. One gallon of water weighs 8lb. Flood waters have high flow rates, so think how many tons worth of pressure we are talking about flowing over a road. The weight of a vehicle suddenly becomes meaningless. Just figure on your vehicle being swept away. Preppers are not gamblers.

    Cars get pushed off bridges during road accidents. This car gets knocked off a bridge by an 18-wheeler:
