WATCH: Weather Channel Van Almost Floats Away in Miami
A Weather Channel van almost floated away while trying to go through a flooded street in Miami during Hurricane Irma.
The Suburban drove through about a foot of rushing water as rain and wind battered it.
"He's by himself on his phone and he's driving in the middle of this," a WSVN 7News reporter on the scene said.

"I guess they know what they're doing. They're the Weather Channel."
Another car had made it through the storm surge waters shortly before.
"Boy if he gets stuck right there it's going to be hard to get him out," the WSVN 7News anchor said as the Weather Channel vehicle rounded a curve in the Brickell neighborhood of Miami.

The storm slammed south Florida on Sunday and is expected to be one of the worst hurricanes in the state's history. Most of southern Florida evacuated before the hurricane made landfall Sunday morning.
