Model S in floods?

Here in Eastern Australia we are being hit with a La Nina - massive downpours and the inevitable flooded roads in places.
Is there any hard information as to the effects of flood water on Teslas? Obviously (?) the battery pack is water resistant, but can the car drive safely through say 6" of water - in other words not deep enough to get into the vehicle but sufficient to immerse the battery?
And yes, I do know about how easily a car can lose it's grip in deep water - this is more about the electrical side of things.
