A local reporter for News 15 reminded us why we should always avoid flooded roadways.

News 15's Paulina Bucka was LIVE from a flooded street in Intracoastal City when she stepped into a ditch. Of course, being that the street was flooded she could not see where the ditch was and she fell into the water.

Luckily the reporter was okay, but as for the equipment she had on---well it may have seen its better days.

Do you remember when Daniel Phillips from KATC reminded us to not make wakes while driving through flooded roadways? Let this be a reminder for you to avoid walking through flooded areas.

You never know where the road drops off.
