Forgive me for flaming you, but that was a stupid move to drive through that flooded road. What if the road was washed out? What if there was debris that cut your tire? I did not watch the whole thing and don't intend to. I have lived in areas subject yo local flooding and it is never safe to drive through it.

I saw a video of a road that was in the process of being washed out and there was no water flowing over the road. Water washed out the culvert under the road and the road caved in one minute it looked fine and the next it was gone. After seeing that I wont drive through water running across the road.

LOL guess like you said you did not take the time to look at the video

i was not the last to drive it or the first

i cut out me setting there looking at the trucks going befor me

and where the kids are playing in it tell latter in the video

there are only 2 roads in and out of where i live and 1 was washed out

mody you are right for the one road that Water did washed out the culvert under the road and the road caved in but it was very slow

have pics of that

i mostly added this to get ppl to add pics of whats going on round them as parts of 98 are still closed / any road around here and i know some RV parks here got it really bad

but i am still where there was 24 inc of rain in 2 hrs and the highest was 27 just 10 miles from me

When you shoot video with a phone, hold it HORIZONTALLY! The resulting video will then fill the screen instead of being just a small vertical image in the center of the screen.

I'll bet the house owners really appreciate the wakes of water lapping at their doors left by the sightseers driving through their neighborhood. Been there, went through that. I finally had to park the Jeep blocking our street to stop the waves from flooding everyone's storage areas. No, I didn't block my neighbors in...our street is short and has access at both ends, we live in the middle. No one was going anywhere anyway...didn't have the ground clearance to get out of their driveways. That was the only time I've seen catfish swimming in our drive way. Hope it's the last.

Riding around in a flooded area site seeing, only makes a really bad situation worse for the people that live there.

Tornado damage, Alabama

This was in the county where I live but not too close to me, considering the size of the snapped tree and root ball of the uprooted one, and other damage I think the coach came out pretty good, seats still in place, I don't know any details about it or the owners. more damage photos here, April 29, 2014 Storm Damage > Gadsden Times > News > Photo 1 of 70

aa more trolling today i see

i guess we well do this again

yes i 100% under stand on making wakes with the trucks and car
2ed time i have said this i was going very slow to stop that

yes i am 100% sure the water was 1 foot higher then it was hrs latter when i tryed to go so any wakes any one made where never as high as the water was befor

it was the only and last road left in and out of where we lived and i have to say 100% if your jeep was in the way to getting out of here it would have been pulled out of the way so every one could to get work or out for food or any thing else

and if the home owners did not tow your jeep out of the way IN MY video the tow trucks would have to keep the road open as there was 2 of them there at all times

where i am at is not some small side road at lest you where lucky you could have did that to stop and help your self

out here there is 6 air force bases and if they say come to work your going to work
