Don’t Underestimate the Power of Flood Water
Turn Around. Don’t Drown.™
More deaths occur due to flooding than from any other natural hazard. Many of these casualties are a result of careless or unsuspecting motorists who attempt to drive through flooded roads. If you come to a flooded roadway, Turn Around. Don’t Drown.
Additional Flood Safety Tips
If you can’t get out, get up. If flooding occurs, get to higher ground. Stay away from flood-prone areas, including dips, low spots, valley, ditches, washes, etc.
Avoid flooded areas or those with rapid water flow. Do not attempt to cross a flowing stream. It takes only 6” of fast flowing water to sweep you off your feet.
Do not allow children to play near high water, storm drains or ditches. Hidden dangers, such as strong currents, could lie beneath the water.
