During a Flood

To keep your family safe during a flood, consider the following:

  • Go to higher ground and avoid areas subject to flooding.
  • Do not attempt to walk across flowing streams or drive through flooded roadways.
  • If water rises in your home before you evacuate, go to the top floor, attic or roof.
  • Listen to a battery operated radio for the latest information.
  • Turn off all utilities at the main power switch and close the main gas valve, if advised to do so.
  • When in contact with flood waters, if possible, wash your hands with soap and disinfected water.
