The Weather Channel has released another of its immersive mixed reality segments — this one focused on flash flooding.

This segment features meteorologist Chris Warren and starts at the very beginning of what causes a flash flood — raindrops.

Warren then appears standing on a sidewalk of what appears to be a typical street — standing on one of the round “daises” that also, as the virtual flood waters rise, conveniently “repels” the water and gives him a dry spot to stand on.
