Lane and I were back at it on 3/8/16 and into the wee hours of 3/9. Nothing severe, just flooding downtown Austin, like here at East Riverside.
It may not look that deep, but it was deep enough at the curb that it almost came over my hood:
We also came across this, which apparently floods so easily there are permanent signs for it:
As we continued looking for flooding we happened across this incident. We still have no idea why this person accelerated so quickly from the side street and then ran away. The incident was reported to the Austin Police Department. It’s a bit hard to see in the video because it’s so dark, but if you go full screen you should be able to see the truck lose control, run into the median, swipe the light pole hard enough to knock it down, and then he gets back on the road and continues driving at dangerous speeds for flooded streets.
