  • Call 9-1-1 if you or anyone you know is in danger. Check on elderly or disabled neighbors to make sure they are well and any appropriate precautions have been taken.
  • Do not enter flooded basements where electricity could be present.
  • Be aware of flash flood areas such as low-level roadways, beneath viaducts, and areas adjacent to waterways.
  • Be ready to evacuate. Move essential items from the basement or first floor to upper floors. If time allows bring outside furniture indoors, to upper levels.
  • If you must leave your home, do not walk through moving water. Six inches of moving water can knock you off your feet. Use a stick to test depth ahead of you.
  • Do not try to drive over a flooded road. If your car stalls, abandon it immediately and seek an alternate route on foot.
