Flash Flooding Stalls Cars

June 16, 2014, 6:02 PM by Brady Mallory

Flash Flooding Stalls Cars
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Driving through Sioux Falls, you could see water gushing from sewer grates.   There was so much water, flash flooding halted traffic near in several parts of town, including a stretch of 14th Street. 

At 33rd Street and Duluth Avenue, several cars stalled in the rising waters.  19-year-old Caroline Renner thought she could make it through the intersection.  She did not. 

"Really worried.  Really worried dabout my car, and all the stuff in it, and my safety," Renner said.

As water seeped into her car, she grabbed whatever she could.

Brady Mallory: Did anyone help you?
Renner: No.

Renner was on her way to work.  It did not take long for her to realize the water was just too much for her Nissan to handle.

"It was rising while I was in there and when I opened it it all filled up.  I even had my school books in there.  Tried to save that," Renner said.

It is not how Renner wanted to spend her afternoon.

"Just freaking out," Renner said.

Eventually, the temporary pond went down.  Renner went back to her car, hoping to start it, but no luck.  Two people helped her push it out of the way as she waited for authorities to arrive.
