Video Footage Shows How Fast A Flash Flood Can Get Out Of Hand

They don't call 'em flash floods for nothing, and in a flash those waters can sweep in and tear up buildings, tear down trees and other plants, and even carry cars and trucks away.

In 2011 a devastating flood swept through Toowoomba, Australia, captured on video from a second story office window by whitelightbringer.

The flood waters fill East Creek and start sweeping all the vehicles in the parking lot away, that is, all but one truck driven out of harms way by a guy who's either really brave or really dumb for taking such a risk.

The guy with the SUV clearly knows what he's doing... He has a tall snorkel coming out of the engine, meaning he drives it through deep water for fun. What's more, even if he got washed down-river he would merely need to wait for an opportunity and could drive right out of it. All cars should come equipped that way...
