Flood Safety Tips
During the winter rainy season, county OES officials offer these flood safety tips:
- Remember that floodwaters are deceptive. Don't try to walk through floodwaters that are more than knee-deep.
- Do not drive where water is over the roads. Part of the road may be washed out.
- If your car stalls in a flooded area, abandon it as soon as possible. Floodwaters could rise very quickly and sweep both the car and its occupants away.
- Keep a portable, battery-operated radio available for emergency information. The radio in your car could serve this purpose. Local Emergency Broadcast stations are KFBK - AM 1530 - and KAHI - AM 950.
