Flooded Electric Vehicles Spontaneously Catch On Fire In Florida After Hurricane• Zero Hedge - Tyler Durden
"There's a ton of EVs disabled from Ian. As those batteries corrode, fires start," according to Jimmy Patronis, Florida's top financial officer and fire marshal.
Patronis tweeted Thursday that after Hurricane Ian made landfall last week and flooded regions of his state, a bunch of electric vehicles (EVs) were caught in floods, batteries were waterlogged, and some spontaneously caught on fire.
There's a ton of EVs disabled from Ian. As those batteries corrode, fires start. That's a new challenge that our firefighters haven't faced before. At least on this kind of scale. #HurricaneIan pic.twitter.com/WsErgA6evO— Jimmy Patronis (@JimmyPatronis) October 6, 2022
