Bus Driver Drives Across Flooded Rd.

Driver Takes School Bus Through Flash Floods.

Quote- "When I first saw this video it was identified by the Pennsylvania Storm Chasers as being from York County, PA (one of the places in which I toured the flooding last week), I figured it was a hoax. Not the video itself, but the fact that it happened during this flood, in this location. People are quick to claim an extreme weather photo or video is from the latest storm, without researching it.

Sadly this one is for real, says the York Daily Record, which has vetted the video and compared it against local geography, saying "The exact location was not identified. But landmarks visible in the video include signs for Les Lane and nearby Spring Valley County Park, which is in southern York County."
I can take it one step further and tell you exactly where it happened: Seaks Run Road (Route 216) at Les Lane. Click on the map below to explore. This precise location is proven by the two signs in a video shot from inside the bus (warning: profanity), one recommending a left turn for the park, and the other being Les Lane on their right, and both shown below."


I could not believe what I was seeing when I watched these two videos, courtesy of AccuWeather. Warning...the students are using foul language. This is a good example of NOT following the "Turn Around...Don't Drown" rule. They were lucky they all didn't get swept away into that raging river and drowned.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
