Learn and practice evacuation routes, shelter plans, and flash flood response. Gather medicines, supplies, including non-perishable foods, cleaning supplies, and water for several days, in case you must leave immediately or if services are cut off in your area.
- If you are under a flood warning; seek higher ground shelter right away, and do not walk, swim or drive through flood waters. Turn Around, Don’t Drown! @ www.ready.gov
