Turn around, don`t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood

Excessive runoff from heavy rainfall will cause flooding of small

In hilly terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are
potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do not attempt to cross flooded
roads. Find an alternate route.
