Be prepared and listen to all warnings issued for your area. Rising water can overtake a vehicle in seconds. Here are some tips about floodwaters could save you or your loved ones in the event of an emergency.
Do not walk or drive across flood waters.
Avoid recreational contact with flood waters due to the unknown amount of raw sewage, waste chemicals and the risk of drowning.
Stay away from floodwaters. If you come upon a flowing stream where water is above your ankles, stop, turn around and go another way. Six inches of swiftly moving water can sweep you off of your feet.
If you come upon a flooded road while driving, turn around and go another way. Most cars can be swept away by less than two feet of moving water.
Do not go floating, boating, swimming or rowing in flood-waters; streams or the river.
Use special caution at night because flood danger is more difficult to recognize in darkness
Stay Away From Power Lines and Electrical Wires. Electrocution is also a major killer in floods. Electrical current can travel through water. Report downed power lines to Public Safety at 860.768.7777.
