Should I worry about floods in the Summer?
It's dry, hot conditions outside. Who is thinking about flooding? Not many people.
The fact is that flooding can happen at anytime of the year. After long periods of dry weather, the ground can become hard and not able to absorb water from heavy rain fall.
Try to educate yourself about flood conditions before they happen.
Do you know the difference between a "flood watch" and "flood warning"? A "flood watch" means that a flood is possible in your area. A "flood warning "means flooding is already occurring or will occur soon. You should be prepared to evacuate at a moments notice if needed with a warning.
If there is a flood warning in your area, the smart thing to do is to evacuate and move to higher ground. Stay there until you know it's safe to return.
Don't try to walk through moving water. Even just 6" of water can make you fall down and only 12" can float most cars.
Keep yourself informed and safe when there is a chance of flooding. Remember it can happen anytime of the year.
