This guy has a very unique way of protecting his precious car during a flood. I doubt that it has been tried or even thought of by anyone else. However, it worked and success is the name of the game.

The horrible flood in China brought tons of garbage to the country. It takes several cleaning boats to get rid of all the mess.

This is a hypermarket of Auchan, a French international retail group which is known internationally. Auchan is a huge distribution group with a presence in 12 countries. However, I have no idea which country this hypermarket is situated in. Anyway, so many products are now ruined. It's a pity…

Mississippi, Kentucky and Tennessee suffered from the most significant floods in the last 20 years. This was the result of torrential rains on May 1-2, 2010. Some areas received 17 inches of rain. 24 deaths were recorded. Record crests were observed on several rivers and springs. Downtown Nashville (Tennessee) disappeared under the water. Many people were evacuated.

Now people are coming back to their homes, starting repairing and eliminating flood consequences.

“Car” Flood (12 pics)

Very often Russians park their cars in garage blocks that are sometimes located far from their houses and are built in lines. Well, this tradition has lead to a real spring “car” flood in Moscow. Some unknown company was installing a heating system not far from a block of garages, and afterwards two water wells “mysteriously” disappeared. Guess what? Over 150 car garages were flooded!

As can be seen from these photos, some floods are worse than others. It doesn’t matter where you live the effects of a flood are devastating and long lasting. As beautiful as Mother Nature can be, she can also be vicious at times.

No One Could Imagine That This Place Could Be Deadly Dangerous… (13 pics + 1 video)

Who would have predicted that ordinary rain can do that with a river in a such idyllic place of Mag-Aso falls on Bohol Island, Philippines.
Everything was normal when suddenly the water began to rise very quickly, the waterfall started to fall heavily and the river current accelerated.
The two guys who were in the water at that time found themselves trapped under the waterfall. This continued for several hours ... The bodies of two guys were found a couple days later, 5 km from this place that seemed to be a little piece of paradise...

These photos come from the series The flood in Minsk but I decided to post them separately.
Very rare shots. Personally, I have never seen anyone riding a jet ski in a flooded city before.
Really cool.

When in some places it is hot even to breath, in other places floods don’t stop.
This is what happens in Minsk, Belarus. Heavy rains have literally turned the city into a “sea.” The water is everywhere: in subways, on the roads, in the buildings, in the means of transport. The rescuers had to help people to get off buses and cars because of it.

Flood in Kiev (33 pics)

A few days ago in the Ukrainian capital Kiev, one of the streets turned into a river in the literal sense of the word.
Not everyone could cross it. The engines of a police car and a Mercedes 500 just cut out and a shuttle bus had to stop in the middle of it to let its passengers go out.
At the same time people kept the smiles on their faces and for two kids it was a fun time.

It's always a shame to see ruined cars, especially when it’s brand new ones. They will never be brought back to shape after that; the only thing left is the recycling. Inside the post you’ll see flooded cars from everywhere and the first set of pictures are Skoda cars flooded right after they were assembled in the plant.
And here you can watch burned cars and another post on the same topic with cars.

Thousands of people came at the B93's 17th-annual Birthday Bash country music concert at the Ionia Fairgrounds, Michigan.
It all started well, but later people had trouble to leave. A stretch of the Grand River rose Saturday, cutting off exits to parking area for thousands of people. They had to abandon their vehicles and take only the essential with them. They found shelter in a local school.

What you’re going to see is not a computer graphics but a real place.
It is the Metropolitan Area Outer Discharge Channel, constructed to avoid flooding on typhoon season. Its construction started in 1992.
The size is impressive: The maximum height - 25.4 m, maximum width - 78 meters. By the way, this place is open for tourists. I can imagine them circling there with open mouths ;)

Houston was flooded (15 pics)

Flooding was caused by incessant rains. Rescuers had to make several rescue operations.
People are trying to stay in their homes, except for some who even in such weather would ride around the city in their cars.

It wouldn’t happen with small cars though, but this guy had no such problem with his monster truck.

One parking lot in Kiev was flooded during the night.
Water has brought a lot of sand and, therefore, in the morning, few people were able to take their cars. They had to dig them out first ...

An octopus was spotted on the scene of crime when the workers of Santa Monica Aquarium came at work last Thursday morning. Their offices were flooded with sea water. Apparently, an octopus pulled apart the filter in his tank that allowed hundreds of gallons of sea water to flood the Aquarium floor.

Film work made by Superflex. They just flooded one McDonald’s.
First, food was floating everywhere and then all other stuff.
Then the lights went off. Short circuit.
Would it be the end of the fast-food era? :)
