After The Rainstorm, The Artificial Grass Field Turned Into A Stretch Trampoline
Jul 10, 2018

On June 24th, Forest City, Iowa, suffered a torrential rain.

 

One resident said that he has lived in the city for 40 years and has never seen such a big rain.

 

20 cm of rainfall in an hour made the school's newly installed artificial turf a super drum kit and turned into a huge trampoline.

 

In the video above, rugby coach Chad Moore tried to walk on the "elastic" lawn. This video was posted on social networking site facebook for only one day and was watched 100,000 times.

 

The school said that the drainage system of the site was designed to drain 2 inches (5.08 cm) of rain within 30 minutes, but this time the rainfall was too large and the drainage could not be tolerated.

 

Looking far away, the place that bulges is like a small hill.

 

When the water is drained, there will still be wrinkles on the surface of the fake grass fiend, posing a safety hazard. The school has notified the fake turf installer to resolve this issue.
