Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. Flood 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!
In desert terrain there are hundreds of low water crossings which are potentially dangerous in heavy rain. Do Not Attempt to Travel Across Flooded Roads. Turn Around. Don't Drown. Find alternate routes.
