FLOOD DAMAGE CAN OCCUR ANYWHERE
Floods are a common and widespread natural disaster, often resulting from a storm damaging your area. Regardless of where you’re located.
It is important to remain mindful of the following safety tips:
- Avoid floodwaters if possible. Even 6 inches of quickly moving water can sweep you off your feet. If you are caught in an area where the water reaches above your ankles, find another path, or walk another way.
- The same rules apply when driving. If you reach a flooded road, find a way around, or follow the directions of safety personnel. Many vehicles can be carried away by as little as 2 feet of moving water. In extreme flooding, consider leaving your vehicle to find higher ground if rising waters do not subside.
- Be cautious of consuming or bathing in water found outside. Diseases can be carried by contaminated floodwaters resulting in prolonged sickness.
