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.

  • Flash your hazard lamps to alert rescuers that you need help.
  • If you’re  in a car with 12-in deep water, get to higher ground to avoid getting swept by  moving current. If possible by no means drive through flood water because you  never know when flash floods will happen.
  • Look for public buildings like  universities and churches that you can go to for safety.
  • Don’t pass  through inundated bridges.
  • Never ignore road closure signs. Don’t travel,  walk, bike, etc. through if you see one.
  • Call for help if your vehicle  loses traction. Unlock your doors, unbuckle your seatbelt, and open your window  a little to equalize pressure in case water rises to the car’s roof level.  Remove bulky clothing and walk or swim away from your vehicle to higher  ground.
  • These are things to do in case you get stuck in a sticky scenario  during major flooding. Don’t panic, get to higher floor, and don’t stop phoning  for help.
