Preparedness and Safety Tips
- DO NOT walk through flowing water, as drowning is the number one cause of flood deaths. Six inches of moving water is strong enough to knock you off your feet.
- DO NOT drive through a flooded area. Much water is not needed to carry a car away.
- DO NOT drive around road barriers. These barriers are put in place for the public's safety.
- Stay away from power lines and electrical wires.
