FLOOD SAFETY TIPS
- If rising water is approaching, leave.
- Evacuate over high ground and plan that route now for this weekend and any time there may be flooding.
- Never drive or walk through floodwaters. Strong currents or unseen washouts can sweep you and your car away.
- Turn off the circuit breaker in your home before you evacuate – if you can do so safely.
- Have a licensed electrician inspect your electrical system before you once again occupy your home if it has been flooded.
- If you are in a flood-prone area, or if you believe your home will be flooded, it is advisable to move valuables from your basement in case water enters your home.
- Check your insurance coverage now, and then contact your insurance company if you have damage.
