How to Survive a Flood in Home

Learn the things that you can do to survive flooding in school.


If you live in an area where there is a flooding announcement, make sure to know what to do when it happens. Learn some tips to survive a dangerous emergency situation.

A storm typically ushers in flooding in affected areas. It is important to know  what to do if you find yourself in the middle of a scary situation like driving  through a flash flood or getting trapped in a home with rising flood waters.  Here are some ways to help you survive a flood in school:

  • Don’t wade into the water. You’re safe inside high-rise  buildings. Keep warm and call for help by setting up a white flag, t-shirt,  sheet, or cardboard with “HELP” or “SOS” written on it.
  • Stay with people  you know and wait until rescuers come for you.
  • Inform your relatives that  you will be safe so that they don’t go out looking for you.
  • Tell your  parents that you will be on your way home if your bus driver decides to go  through flooded streets, so they can anticipate how long you’ll arrive at your  place. Normally, convince your driver to stay on campus, where you can sit it  out until it’s safe to go.
  • Connect with authorities via social press. In an  emergency flooding scenario, 911 calls might not get through in time because a  lot of people might need rescuing at the same time. Do not call 911 if you’re  not in a life-threatening scenario.
