WATERS ARE USUALLY DEEPER THAN THEY APPEAR. JUST ONE FOOT OF
FLOWING WATER IS POWERFUL ENOUGH TO SWEEP VEHICLES OFF THE
ROAD. WHEN ENCOUNTERING FLOODED ROADS MAKE THE SMART CHOICE...
TURN AROUND...DON'T DROWN.

A FLASH FLOOD WATCH MEANS THAT CONDITIONS ARE FAVORABLE FOR
RAPIDLY RISING WATERS AND FLOODING IN AND NEAR THE WATCH AREA. IF
YOU ARE IN THE WATCH AREA...CHECK PREPAREDNESS REQUIREMENTS...
KEEP INFORMED...AND BE READY FOR QUICK ACTION IF FLASH FLOODING
IS OBSERVED OR IF A WARNING IS ISSUED.
