SAFETY & PREPAREDNESS

  1. Learn the safest route from your home or business to higher, safer ground, but stay tuned to reports of changing flood conditions.
  2. If emergency officials tell you to evacuate or leave your home, go immediately to a safe shelter, hotel or relative’s house.
  3. Turn off all utilities, gas and electricity at the main switch. Stay away from power lines and electrical lines. Be alert for gas leaks.
  4. Do not walk through flowing water. Drowning is the number one cause of flood related deaths. Currents can be deceptive; six inches of moving water can knock you off your feet.
  5. Do not drive through a flooded area. More people drown in their cars than in any other location. Vehicles also push water into homes and cause additional property damage.
