Wading Through Flood Waters and River during a storm

The old adage, 'Still waters run deep' could be aptly adapted to fit the conditions of the flood waters following a storm if depth is replaced by speed. While flood waters can indeed rise to threatening heights, the real danger lies in the rapid pace of the flowing water, the seemingly manageable surface, hiding beneath it currents that easily sweep people, vehicles and even houses away. Aside from this danger, it's impossible to know what floats in the flood waters as chemicals could have been spilt during a storm, as well as bacteria and untold other sources of diseases.
