And you wonder why flood warnings are constantly put out…

Apparently some people decided to try and ford some floodwater locally. They were driving through, and then decided to stop and back out.

One of the travelers lost her purse, and then all 3 were in the water according to reports. Another female companion managed to get out of the water, and called emergency workers. The other two are still being searched for at this hour.

This should serve as a cautionary tale to everyone. Don’t try to drive through floodwater. Don’t try to save your purse (it can be replaced).

Would you drive through this???
