Motorist Drives Into Flood Right In Front Of TV Reporter; Now WATCH What Happens Next!

UPDATE AT 1:01 PM CENTRAL — According to the Houston Chronicle, there have been over 1,200 high-water rescues so far. At least one man has been found dead in a submerged vehicle.

An ABC Eyewitness News reporter and his videographer were stunned when, right before they were set to go live, they witnessed a disoriented motorist drive straight into a severely flooded roadway and began to float away.

"Dude, you've got to get out of the car. You've got to get out!" reporter Steve Campion yelled out.

Now watch what happens next (Parental warning: Very brief, mild language):

According to the Houston Chronicle, up to 17 inches of rain has fallen in the past 24 hours in some parts of the Houston area. Many houses and buildings have been flooded out, and numerous motorists have had to be rescued from their vehicles. Amazingly, according to the Chronicle, no deaths have been reported as of 11:39 a.m. Central Time.

Please pray for the people of Houston!
