Notice they are level to the TOP of the stop sign. They are on top of a truck. These kids were fortunately rescued. This was about 2 miles from my house.
I mentioned bad traffic earlier today - now I know why we were being diverted off the interstate. This is Vietnam Veterans Blvd, a highway/interstate I drive every day to and from work. It is completely submersed in one section - this is about a mile from my house.
It really was an amazing amount of rain in a very short period of time. Here is one of our local weathermen describing the oncoming storm in a way I REALLY don't think he meant to - yes, this is a bit juvenile, but c'mon - That's some funny stuff there!
