Floods are the most widespread natural disaster aside from wildfires. It is mostly caused by spring thawing or heavy rains, snowmelt runoffs, flash floods, and mudflows. According to the Centers for Disease Control, Flooding makes up 39 percent of all-natural disasters.
Let's lay out some impressive facts about floodwater. It is believed that water is stronger than wind. Water moving at 25 mph has the pressure equivalent of wind blowing at 790 mph, faster than the speed of sound. A car can be taken away in as little as 2 feet of water. A foot of water will float many vehicles. According to research, one or two-foot deep of water typically exerts 500 pounds of lateral force, which could easily tip a vehicle on its side or flip it over.

The person who posted the video didn't state Where exactly it happened but the person comes from the Philippines. Click on the link below to watch how strong the water was pushing the cars.
