Flood Collapsing A Road

via videosift.com

A really interesting video that shows the process of a road being destroyed by a surge of water perhaps caused by the drainage under the road being blocked by the tree from what I gather. It's a little long but there are certainly a few wow moments in it.

Lots of water + undersized drainage pipe + obstruction = massive erosion.

I wonder if there is a standard that road workers must follow when placing those courrogated draiage pipes based on CFM of runoff plus a safety margin, or if it is just a bunch of guesswork.

That was a road in the town that I live in. It was filmed by Channel 8, and the road is STILL being worked on. We had quite a few roads flood, making it literally impossible to get to your house. It happened in August of this year.
