Flood

If You are Indoors

Turn on a battery-operated radio or television to get the latest emergency information. Get your preassembled emergency supplies. If told by the authorities to leave, do so immediately.

If You are Outdoors

Climb to high ground and stay there. Avoid walking through any floodwaters. If it is moving swiftly, even water six inches deep can sweep you off your feet.

If You are in a Car

If you come to a flooded area, turn around and use an alternate route. If your car stalls, abandon it immediately and climb to higher ground. Many deaths have resulted from attempts to move stalled vehicles.
