Flood-proof car bag, anyone?

Due to the nonstop rains, we are now seeing floodwaters in Metro Manila and nearby provinces that remind us of Typhoon Ondoy. As in the catastrophic deluge three years ago, we are now also witnessing cars floating or being submerged in water. Definitely bad news for car owners who live in low-lying areas or places prone to flooding.

Their question: What can they do to "flood-proof" their cars?

A Filipino engineer has developed an innovative method to keep away from damaged cars in times of massive flooding.

John Echauz, an executive at a car insurance company has developed the Floody Carbag. It is made from high-grade industrial plastic, is a transparent, highly-engineered product that is both water proof and puncture-resistant.

The Floody Carbag is essentially a huge plastic sack big enough to envelop an entire vehicle, which supposedly provides watertight enclosure via zippers. Below are the five steps detailed in the ad (see actual ad below)
