One of the most impacted areas from Hurricane Harvey are airports, they are the life line for people and cargo moving around the world. If an airport comes grinding to a halt it could mean your food supply is cutoff. Not only have we been seeing photos of Texas airports underwater but we’re now seeing videos from Mexico City International Airport being flooded by all the water being dumped on.

The following video was posted by a Reddit user who shows a Air France A380 sitting in standing water coming up to the top of its massive wheels. The Hurricane isn’t going to be the most expensive result but all the water that its brought in and the flooding that it causes where it goes.
