An employee at a Columbia, South Carolina, Starbucks tried to brave rising floodwaters for his customers on Wednesday, April 5. More than two inches of rain fell in the city in 24 hours, and roads and communities were under water.
This video was taken at a Starbucks on Gervais Street in downtown Columbia. At the start of the video, the employee can be seen with drink carriers trying to walk to the parking lot. He tells the customers his socks are “so wet right now,” as the customer asks him where he is going. Credit: John Owens IV via Storyful
