Floods and flash floods are among the most common and widespread of all natural hazards and are the number one weather-related killer.
Flash Floods are quick-rising floods usually occurring as the result of heavy rains over a short period of time. 💦
The constant influx of water is powerful enough to sweep vehicles away, roll boulders into roadways, uproot trees, level buildings, and drag bridges off their piers. 💦
Just six inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
💦Stay off of bridges over fast-moving water.
💦Do not walk, swim, or drive through flood waters. 💦Turn Around, Don’t Drown! 🚙🚘
