Apparently Storm Doris turned into a "weather bomb", whatever that means. Very high winds, snow and lots of flooding.

This guy clearly hasn't heard you should avoid driving through deep water, esp in low car like a MINI.

Be careful out there you Brits.

Yes a MINI can take water just fine. That guy is just mugging for the camera.

Looks like he F-56'd it....

Probably sucked water down the intake and hydrolocked it....

Nice car, but he shouldn't have his window open. His interior might get wet...

The water isn't even covering the top of his wheel and he's dumbfounded as to what to do! Figures.
