PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

MOST FLOOD DEATHS OCCUR IN AUTOMOBILES. NEVER DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE INTO
AREAS WHERE THE WATER COVERS THE ROADWAY. FLOOD WATERS ARE USUALLY
DEEPER THAN THEY APPEAR. IT IS ESPECIALLY DIFFICULT TO JUDGE THINGS
AT NIGHT. JUST ONE FOOT OF FLOWING WATER CAN BE POWERFUL ENOUGH TO
SWEEP VEHICLES OFF THE ROAD. WHEN ENCOUNTERING FLOODED ROADS MAKE
THE SMART CHOICE...TURN AROUND...DONT DROWN.
