Flooded Radio Stations

In natural disasters people turn to radio for emergency information. radio is uniquely available in most disasters. When the lights go out a 9 volt battery can keep you connected to information by radio even when cable is out, the phone lines are down, and there are no bars on your cell phone... you can tune in and get information. Radio is structured to survive most disasters. But among these... flood waters are the hardest to endure for a broadcaster.  You can see a few videos below ranging from total destruction to tales of survival.
