ENOUGH TO SWEEP VEHICLES OFF THE ROAD. WHEN ENCOUNTERING FLOODED
ROADS MAKE THE SMART CHOICE...TURN AROUND...DONT DROWN.

EXCESSIVE RUNOFF WILL CONTINUE TO CAUSE FLOODING OF SMALL CREEKS AND
STREAMS...AS WELL AS FARM AND COUNTRY ROADS. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO
TRAVEL ACROSS FLOODED ROADS. FIND ALTERNATE ROUTES.
