The next time you're in a southern Utah canyon and you hear there's a flash flood advisory, take it seriously.
This new video shows how fast a flood builds and what it hurls at you. That big thing creeping toward the camera at the start of the video is actually a large pile of logs.
Perhaps the most important aspect of this video is in the notes on Youtube. The photographer says the flood was a result of rain that fell miles away.
So even if the sky is clear where you're standing, pay attention to the forecast elsewhere in the region.
