Flood / Flash Flood Warning

A Flood/Flash Flood Warning means that flooding/flash flooding has been reported or is imminent.

You must act quickly !
You may have only SECONDS to save yourself and your family!

  • Go to higher ground immediately! Get out of areas subject to flooding such as dips, low spots, canyons, washes, and areas along streams and creeks. In urban areas, stay away from clogged storm drains and  underpasses.  If advised to evacuate, do so immediately!
  • Avoid areas that are already flooded.
  • Do not attempt to cross flowing streams or walk through any floodwaters. If it is moving swiftly, as little as 6 inches of water can sweep you off your feet.
  • NEVER drive through flooded roadways! Turn around and go another way. If your vehicle stalls, leave it immediately and seek higher ground. Rising water can quickly engulf the car and sweep it away. It only takes a foot of rapidly moving water to drag a car into deeper waters or flip it over. 
  • Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize flood dangers.
