Influencer Jordan broadcast live trapped in his flooded Rolls Royce. “Now I’m underwater, like all my crypto friends,” he says, using a phrase used for investors who have lost their money. On other streets that have now turned into rivers, expensive muscle cars and state-of-the-art electric cars are abandoned—their owners left in rescue boats. The waves (!) of the water bring furniture that the wind lifted from the balconies of luxury apartments.
