A reminder to take precaution whenever a prolonged rain falls over several days or when an intense amount of rain falls over a short period of time. Water is a powerful force of Mother Nature and it doesn’t take much for a flash flood to strike. Roads and other areas covered by water should not be entered regardless if you’re on foot or in a vehicle. You may not truly know the depth of the water or the state of the ground/road underneath. Plan ahead and use an alternative route when traveling near the areas listed below. Play it safe and “turn around don’t drown®”.
