Submission + - Cars Lost In Flood—But Critical Servers Save (blogs.com)

mysqlrocks writes: "As Tropical Storm Irene swamped Vermont state offices with flooding of epic proportions, IT staff took it upon themselves to save critical servers. At the same time, their cars left in the parking lot were lost to the flooding. From the article:

Two AHS employees —network administrator Andrew Matt and deputy chief information officer Darin Prail — parked their cars behind the AHS building at around 6 p.m. that Sunday, August 28, and rushed in to save the equipment. When they came back outside, giant trees were floating by and the entire parking lot was under water. So were their cars.
