Floods

What should I do in the event of a flood

If a flood is expected, turn on your battery-powered radio and listen for information about when and where to evacuate. If a flood or flash flood is coming toward you, move quickly to a higher elevation—but don’t ever try to outrun a flood. Also, don’t drive through standing water, as it can quickly rise and stall your vehicle, possibly trapping you among swift water.
