Flood Waters Send Dealership Lot Piling Up Against Bridge
August 13th, 2018
A New Jersey car dealership was in trouble during a period of torrential rain caused flash floods across the norther part of the state. It actually sent cars from the lot down a river until they started piling up against a highway overpass.
Several cars can be seen floating away down the Peckman River in Passaic County from the parking lot of the dealership still with sticker prices available on the windshield. The vehicles eventually knock into each other and pile up as drivers stranded on the highway react.
The National Weather Service's New York office had issued a flood advisory at the time for the region and the area ended up seeing between 3 inches and 4 inches of rain by the time the storms moved out. The NWS noted that 12 inches of fast-moving water can carry away a small car.
