Monday, April 29, 2013 – OEM Tip of the Week: Don’t Get Washed Away in a Flash Flood
During Severe Weather Awareness Week, OEM encourages you to take some time to learn about flash flood hazards and what you can do to stay safe. Slow-moving thunderstorms and heavy rains are enough to produce flash flooding in streets, which can create dangerous situations for both pedestrians and drivers. Six inches of water is more than enough to knock you off your feet or cause a loss of vehicular control. Avoid walking through moving water, do not drive into flooded areas, and stay out of any building if it is surrounded by floodwaters.
