Flooding is a top weather related killer. Most flood deaths occur at night when people become trapped in a stalled vehicle in a flooded area. Following these safety measures can help ensure you and your family’s safety on flooded roadways:

  • Avoid already flooded areas. A flowing stream can carry a vehicle downstream.
  • Never drive through a flooded area. Always remember to TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN!
  • If you are driving at night, be especially cautious as it is harder to recognize flood conditions.
  • Never drive around a barricaded road.
  • If your vehicle stalls, abandon it immediately and seek higher ground. Rising water can engulf a vehicle and its occupants.
