PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Excessive runoff from melting snow may cause flooding of small
creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses
as well as other drainage areas and low lying spots. This is most
likely in areas where drains are clogged with ice, snow, or slush.
Standing water on roads increases the threat of vehicle
hydroplaning.

Snowmelt is very efficient at increasing soil moisture, which
increases the threat of landslides. Landslides can easily bury or
destroy a house or vehicle. If you are outdoors, get out of its
path. If you are indoors, take cover under a sturdy piece of
furniture.
