Most people are familiar with storm chasers, but flood chasers? Do people really chase flash floods for fun and excitement?

Yes! Actually, career flood chaser David Rankin of RankinStudio confesses he’s been chasing and studying floods for over ten years now. 

The latest flash flood he captured on camera was in the Southern Utah desert. After six hours of heavy rain 40+ miles north of his location, he was able to decipher where the flash flood would travel. 

It’s quite the sight to see, and is now going viral.

It’s been a while since a truly WTF video originating from Mother Russia went viral. Finally, the Western web can rest easy now that this crazy video posted by kitrox2 has gone viral, amassing over 350,000 hits

Australia has been pounded by water over the past few days, resulting in mass flooding. Some beaches have even seen sea foam from the serious flooding. 

But now their brethren in Montreal have been battling flood waters as well after a nearby reservoir burst. McGill University in Montreal, Canada experienced serious flooding after the break, so great that one student was swept away by a river that took over the quad. 

“Dude, somebody should probably go save her!”
