I haven't posted in a while but I shot this yesterday at Royal Purple raceway in Baytown,Tx. This of course isn't all the cars that got flooded.

I have a few coworkers that live in baytown and some say they are going straight to the crusher. I doubt that because there are alot of usable parts on them.

Impressive video. Too bad these are all lost.
The shot straight from above is beautiful. (1:03--)
I noticed a freeze around 0:40.

The freeze is something I did. I only spent an hour editing only because I have a golf event monday, but now I'm dealing with a crashed drone. The next day I had my first crash after 2 years flying.

That was really somewhat moving. Not only for the loss of the cars, but that it also gives one the impression of the immense scale of overall loss of other property that must be involved, and very sadly, life.
Nice shots!!  If you live in the area, I hope you weren't seriously affected.  Thanks for the vid.

Wow!!! That's an insane amount of vehicles! Are these all flood damaged!? Some tow company was seriously busy. I wonder if people even know where there vehicle(s) went! Pretty crazy. I am in Central Florida and we got pretty lucky. Lots of damage but nothing compares to this.

I'm in Pearland, we got 52" of rain. I didn't have a chance to get the drone out plus didn't really want to risk it with the rain. It was about to come out of the ditch behind our fence but didn't.

Between the two major hurricanes, over $290B worth of destruction.


And now a major earthquake in Mexico City... But we have a loving God?

I tear up, when I think too much about the devastation and loss of innocent lives.
And that makes it very difficult to type.  

Prayers for all, who are still lost in the rubble. I am so happy to live here in landlocked Alberta.

Hi Adam, I'm happy that you are safe and unharmed by the Hurricanes.


What a year this has been...

Insane amount of cars there. Some very nice ones too especially the yellow - Bumblebee Camaro early on in the shoot.

Don't worry I think a few are coming to Canada with sparkling clean titles

Well, I do need a nice comfy hunting vehicle. See any jeeps in that bunch? ;-)

There were a few. Plenty of people hunt here so they should just open it up as a pick a part. Could make a killing

In the first moment of video I thought there is kind of motorace and that all cars came here to park, then I realized that was a misunderstanding.
To be sure I checked where the Baytown is and all became clear.
It is enormous amount of cars and I'm sure that's not all.

Thanks for sharing
