[ARCHIVED] Flood Information & Safety

Flood Imate

Flood Information & Safety

Typically, flooding results in more weather-related fatalities than any other thunderstorm related hazard. Why? Many of the deaths occur in automobiles as they are swept downstream. Of these drownings, many are preventable, but too many people continue to drive across a flooded road. 

For more information go to the Flood Safety page. https://www.ready.gov/floods 

For each foot the water rises up the side of the car, the car displaces 1500 lbs. of water. In effect, the automobile weighs 1500 lbs. less for each foot the water rises.  Two feet of water will carry away most automobiles!!!
