Driving in an Arizona Monsoon Flash Flood
In Ahwatukee (South East Phoenix) a big monsoon hit and did some pretty crazy flooding in under an hour of rain - probably about 45 minutes of downpour until we started driving and recorded this video. For reference that stuck honda at 2:20 - we're sitting at 48th and Elliot facing East. The big rains had passed and we wanted to go drive around to show off cars stuck in intersections and washes and major roadways flooded. This was July 13th 2008
Nashville Flood - Monster Truck Rescue, May 2, 2010
See my photographs of flooded downtown Nashville: http://www.flickr.com/photos/birdsarethewords/sets/72157623861490527/ Charlotte & Morrow: Well-intentioned people with a boat attempt to rescue the stranded Pep Boys employees and are upstaged by a monster truck. Rescued Pep Boy guy discovers his car is overturned in the middle of a flooded street. EDIT: People keep commenting on the idiocy of the guys in the boat and asking why people didn't just walk out of the store. The water was mixed with raw sewage. You walk through that. Also, people had been strongly advised not to drive through the water because they could just become another victim in need of help from a system that was already overloaded. The current on the side of the store had already washed cars away, so it wasn't incredibly smart to drive into all of that. I just wanted to make sure that people know that the boat guys were trying their best to help, and had gone to the trouble of bringing their own boat out to rescue some people when the city didn't have enough boats to go around. It's still funny, but they were just trying to help, and the monster truck guy was being pretty reckless.
