A foot of water will float many vehicles, 2 feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles including SUV's and trucks. Do not attempt to drive through a flooded road, you and the vehicle can be swept away quickly. The depth of water is not always obvious, the road may be washed out under the water, and you could be stranded or trapped. If flood waters rise around your car, abandon the car and move to higher ground, when water is not moving or not more than a few inches deep. If your vehicle is trapped in rapidly moving water, stay in the vehicle, if the water is rising inside the vehicle, seek refuge on the roof.
