Moving Water Is Very Powerful

More than a hundred people have died in flooding across the Philippines, many of them in vehicles. Let this photo be a lesson to anyone contemplating driving in a flooded area: moving water is very powerful.

Each foot of water rising up the side of your car displaces 1,500 pounds of weight, meaning many cars become toys after a couple feet of rising water. Nearly half of all flash flood fatalities are auto related. Turn around. Don't drown.
