Avoid Driving Through Flooded Areas
As little as six inches of moving water can cause you to lose control of your vehicle.
Be Aware of Sanitation Hazards
Floodwaters may contain overflow from sewage systems and runoff from industrial waste products. Use caution when handling items exposed to floodwaters.
Have Supplies Ready
FEMA recommends keeping a supply of nonperishable food that will last for three to 14 days. Also have a gallon of water per person per day available.
