When I saw this video on Friday, I was suspect about its origin but after research, it really did happen.
Many have been victims of Hurricane Florence as the rains came and the streets of many of the coastal towns have been flooded. But this video was very spectacular.
Surprised huh? How many of you would have thought you could use it for electricity?
To prepare for Hurricane Florence, one North Carolina family decided to try to drive their Volkswagen Jetta up two supremely sketchy makeshift ramps, and onto the front porch. It’s not to save the car from the storm like we saw with last year’s hurricanes, either—it’s for a very different reason.
This all happened in Lumberton, North Carolina yesterday. I called up LaSha Ross, who shot much of the video, and she actually told me it was her husband, Devin, who came up with the idea of driving the car onto the porch, but it wasn’t for the obvious reason.
“It wasn’t actually to save the car… it was to get the car on the porch for electricity,” she told me over the phone. She said the family plans to use the car as a generator, plugging household appliances into a 1000W power inverter connected to the 12-volt battery.
The other reason for moving the car, LaSha told me, was that her husband wanted to show that it could be done after his friend voiced some doubts. “He was pretty adamant about proving his point that he could do anything,” she told me.
