Wow… the rain these past couple of nights has been no joke. And not too many were laughing tonight at The Vinoy Renaissance St. Petersburg tonight. Check out this video! The rain came in so fast that there would probably be no way to get the cars out in time. You’ve gotta think most of these cars in the videos are totaled. The water came up to the windows in some cases. Just incredible how nature can unleash its wrath so quickly this time of year. The good news is I haven’t heard any reports of anyone hurt.
This shows the aftermath of a couple inches of rain in a short period of time in downtown #stpetersburg as the #vinoy valet parking garage is completely flooded. @breakingweather @accuweather pic.twitter.com/TNS5eBQpe0— Jonathan Petramala (@jpetramala) August 1, 2019
JUST INCREDIBLE: Take a look at this #flooding near the #Vinoy Hotel! This is their valet parking lot. One of their employees almost got stuck in the floodwaters. All of the cars in the garage are a total loss @10NewsWTSP pic.twitter.com/2LDnrij0Rx— Angelina Salcedo (@AngelinaWTSP) August 1, 2019
