Flash flooding can occur in areas where the ground is saturated and the Santa Clara Valley Water District advises that if floodwaters rise around your car, abandon the car and move to higher ground. A foot of water will float many vehicles. Two feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles, including SUVs and pick-ups.
