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.
