PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...


Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood

deaths occur in vehicles.


Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the

dangers of flooding.


In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are

potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded

roads. Find an alternate route.
