    So bad that houses are floating down rivers while on fire. 23 dead, too.

    I wouldn't even be that close if i could help it. Floodwaters are crazy powerful.

    The 8 yr old boy that died the other day in that flood apparently just slipped into a foot of water in a ditch and that was that. Too powerful.

    Good luck to them.

    True story. I've tried going through a thigh-deep flood and the water flow was so powerful that it took me in any direction it pleased. I was also basically at an intersection where two streams combine to make one big stream. Carried me as far as it pleased until I was able to hit something, grab on, and move to more shallow waters.
