If you’re an outdoor enthusiast chances are you already have a healthy dose of respect for the forces that shape our planet. But just in case you need a reminder, check out this scary video that was shot a few weeks back in southern Utah. It shows the incredible power of the flash floods that can hit that region following a tremendous rainstorm. In this case, the floods occur about six hours after heavy rains (3 inches/7.62 cm) fell to the north. As the water rolls through the area, it puts on an impressive display as it pushes debris of all types, including large rocks, onto the dry creek bed.
Thanks to Jon Miller for sharing this. Amazing stuff for sure.
