Tips:

NEVER drive through flooded roadways. STOP! Turn Around Don’t Drown.

• Vehicles can be swept away by less than 2 feet of water.

• The roadbed may be washed out.

• You can lose control of your vehicle in only a few inches of water.

• Do not drive around a barricade. Turn around and go another way!


• Other tips – BEFORE A FLOOD TIPS

To prepare for a flood, you should:

• Build an emergency kit and make a family communications plan. http://www.ready.gov/make-a-plan

• Elevate the furnace, water heater and electric panel in your home if you live in an area that has a high flood risk.

• Consider installing “check valves” to prevent flood water from backing up into the drains of your home.
