It's a pretty simple and short backstory.
The car was located in Queens. Hurricane came, and residents who did stay in their buildings and not do the evacuation said water levels came up to as high as side view mirrors.
As soon as bridges opened up, i went to check out the car. still looked clean inside and out, no water, and ran just fine. As a pre-caution because surrounding buildings and cars were flooded, i called up insurance.
about 3 weeks later the car was deemed OK, no problems, passed inspection. Not going to be scrapped, and i was told i was "of the lucky few" who's car made it out just fine.
