Precautionary/Preparedness Actions

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood waters are usually deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful enough to sweep vehicles off the road. When encountering flooded roads make the smart choice: turn around and don’t drown.

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small Creeks and streams, highways, and underpasses in urban areas. Additionally, country roads and farmlands along the banks of creeks, streams, and other low lying areas are subject to flooding.
