Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Most flood deaths occur in vehicles. Do not attempt to cross
water-covered roadways, bridges, or low-level crossings. It is
not Worth the risk. Please turn around, don't drown.

Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize the
dangers of flooding.

In hilly and mountainous terrain, there are hundreds of low-water
crossings which can be dangerous in heavy rain. Low-water crossings
can be submerged by flood waters quickly and without warning. Never
attempt to travel across flooded crossings. Find an alternate Route.
It takes only a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles
away.
