This little creek crossing is a calm, ankle deep scene one second and a raging flood the next. Put on your life jacket and check this out.
Flash floods are one of the most dangerous forces that nature produces. Even the most benign little spit of water can become a raging torrent in the shortest amount of time creating a life-threatening situation.
You don’t have to wait long for this little creek to disappear into a flotsam and jetsam carrying dynamo of danger.
Thanks to Facebook user Robert Teague for sharing this amazing look at what a small body of water can do in a very short amount of time. Based on the comments and the user’s Facebook page this appears to be somewhere near Ellerston, Australia.
It just goes to show that a flash flood can cause a dangerous situation for hunters, hikers, campers, and even just ordinary citizens that happen upon the wrong place at the wrong time. Even though it starts off not looking all that bad, there’s no question that amount of water could take you off of your feet. And by the look of the debris, you would have a hard time surviving it.
