How much water is needed for your car to float away?

Only 2 feet of water can float a large vehicle or even a bus, therefore you should never drive through flooded roads.

If you come upon water standing on the road turn around and go back the way you came, do not cross over because you don't know exactly how deep the water is.

Furthermore, just 6 inches of rapidly moving flood water can knock a person down and carry them away.
