As if you needed another reason to stay home during severe weather. Take a look at this video from Yukon, Oklahoma.

A veteran storm chaser got caught in flood waters last Friday when powerful storms and tornadoes hit the state. He shot this video as he drove to work.

The roads were so flooded, so he didn’t realize he was driving into a creek. His car was swept away. A police officer was nearby and was able to pull the man to safety.
