If a Flash Flood Warning is in effect:

– Turn around, don’t drown when encountering flooded roads. Most flood deaths occur in vehicles.

– Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the dangers of flooding.

– Stay away or be swept away. River banks and culverts can become unstable and unsafe.

– You should monitor the latest forecast and be prepared to take action should additional Flash Flood Warnings be issued.
