Protect People From the Flood Hazard
Turn around, Don't Drown
- In the event of flooding, never drive through flood waters. It can be very hard to determine how deep the water is. Do not drive through any barricaded roads or streets.
- Stay out of flood waters, they can hide other hazards. Damaged infrastructure such as washed-out roads and bridges and exposed electrical components are some additional hazards due to flooding.
- Watch out for displaced wildlife as animals will seek higher and dry ground.
