precautionary/preparedness actions…

excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots.

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, don’t drown.
