Flooding/Flash Flooding

Flooding is the result of heavy thunderstorms, thawing winter snow or spring rains, in areas near water.  Flash floods occur with little or no warning after intense storms dropping large amounts of rain within a brief period.  The force of six inches of swiftly moving water can knock a person to the ground. 

Suggested Safety Tip
Seek higher ground.  Avoid walking in flood waters and wear rubber-soled shoes when walking near a flooded area.  Look for fire hazards such as submerged electrical appliances, broken or leaking gas lines, electrical circuits exposed to water or any flammable/explosive materials traveling upstream.  Discard any food, including canned goods, pots, pans and small electrical items that have come in contact with flood and/or standing waters.
