Millions of dollars worth of luxury cars have been destroyed during the floods that tore through Florida earlier this month.

Footage has emerged of a garage in Miami full of exotic cars, which have fallen victim to the floods that swept Florida. 

The video posted on Instagram by @florida_corvette_owners shows a garage engulfed in water, with floating grime and a generator likely still pumping water out of the garage. 

The caption states, “Remember that scuba diving corvette from the other days [sic] storm? Well, looks like not everyone was so lucky. RIP.”

It’s not the only video that has been linked to these severe floods, as last week a C8 Corvette was seen driving through dangerously high levels of water, almost becoming completely submerged. Reportedly, the vehicle made it out unscathed.

Winds of 64km/h were reported during Tropical Storm Alex, while rainfall was heaviest in the suburb of Hollywood, not far from Miami (377mm).
