Precautions

When you see flooding, practice these precautions:

  • Avoid walking on low bridges when water is high.
  • Do not drive, walk, or swim through flooded areas.
  • Heed riptide and storm surge warnings.
  • Keep in mind weather can change quickly.
  • Take evacuations and warnings seriously.

Remember flood waters can be charged by downed power lines or contain other hazards like snakes. Do not wade through water unless instructed to by a first responder. Even 6 inches of quickly moving currents can knock an adult down - 12 inches can wash away a car.
