Model 3 and Floods

How good are Tesla’s on flooded roads? I am waiting for my Model 3 delivery in (hopefully) a week.

I live in Tampa FL and for those familiar, the roads here flood very easily and quiet often during the rainy season. I’ve been driving my girlfriends suv and was glad to be in a high car a couple of days ago when heavy storms passed through. Saw a few cars stuck on the road.

Do they do better than ICE cars that I see often stuck in these floods? Obviously, I’m talking about water levels that do not enter the cabin and short the electrical insides.
