My cousin who is staying with me, that was her car (the black car with the plates hanging down) she is 9 months pregnant and had to swim to higher ground, the water came up to the roof of her car. She is ok, pretty shaken up, and her car is total. Do you know if there is anywhere she might be able to get some help from this?

The pistons will be full of water, and you will have to remove the spark plugs. As soon as you turn the engine over, it will blow all the water out. Simply install the spark plugs, and it should start, and run as good as new.
