During a Flood

DURING A FLOOD

If Indoors:

  • Turn on battery-operated radio or television to get the latest emergency information.

  • Get your preassembled emergency supplies.

  • If told to leave, do so immediately.
If Outdoors:

  • Climb to high ground and stay there.

  • Avoid walking through any floodwaters. If it is moving swiftly, even water 6 inches deep can sweep you off your feet.

If In A Car:

  • If you come to a flooded area, turn around and go another way.
  • If your car stalls, abandon it immediately and climb to higher ground. Many deaths have resulted from attempts to move stalled vehicles.

DURING AN EVACUATION

  • If advised to evacuate, do so immediately. Evacuation is much simpler and safer before flood waters become too deep for ordinary vehicles to drive through.
  • Listen to a battery-operated radio for evacuation instructions.
  • Follow recommended evacuation routes - shortcuts may be blocked.
  • Leave early enough to avoid being marooned by flooded roads.
