Flash flood chaser David Rankin is an expert at tracking storms and catching the resulting floods on camera, and after a series of thunderstorms this week he has two new videos showing Mother Nature’s awesome power at work.
One video shot August 4 shows a massive flash flood near Grand Staircase, Utah. The footage was shot in Buckskin Wash, which drains into Buckskin Gulch. Rankin said two modest-sized floods joined to create one “monster” flood.
Another video shot the day before shows flooding on the Paria River.
