Survival Scenario – Flash Flood

It’s been awhile since I’ve given you a survival scenario, so I thought I’d come up with something to make you think over the weekend.

Scenario flood

Over the past couple of days it’s been raining heavy and the water levels in town are rising dramatically.  Instead of easing off as it has in the past the rain now intensifies and drops ten inches of rain in just a matter of hours.

You’re in town and need to get home, so you turn your car and head for the homestead.  As you’re crossing a low area already partially flooded you’re suddenly hit by a wall of water that sweeps your vehicle off the road and presses it up against a tree.  It’s twenty-five yards to shore on one side and thirty yards on the other.

The water is rising and you can see people on shore waving at you to get on the roof of your vehicle.  It looks like one of the people may have a rope, but you don’t know how they’re going to get it to you.  You know it’s going to be at least fifteen minutes or maybe longer before someone can get there to help and the water is starting to come in through the windows of the vehicle.

Using your own circumstances such as:  kids that might be with you, heart condition, broken leg, sick mother, whatever…

What do you do?
