The driver of this car is an idiot. Don't be this idiot. People die ever year trying to cross flooded roads. For reals...don't do this.

Hazardous weather

Flash flood watch remains in effect from 8:00 p.m. EDT this evening through Monday afternoon.

Flash flood watch remains in effect from 8:00 p.m. EDT this evening through Monday afternoon.

Persistent showers will blanket the Northern and Southern Berkshires tonight. Rain will likely be heavy at times. Total rainfall predicted is between 1 1/2 to 3 inches, with locally higher amounts possible.

Ground Already Soaked

Because the soil is so saturated due to a week of nearly daily rain, the expected deluge may cause localized flash flooding, particular in low lying areas and areas where drainage is poor. Some smaller streams may crest their banks with little to no warning, flooding roadways.

Do NOT be the idiot who tries to cross a flooded road in your car. People die every year doing that shit.
