Weather predictions for this week include sufficient rain, wind, and hail to warrant storm and flood warnings in Houston and surrounding cities. We seem to be experiencing these conditions on a regular basis and it is crucial to exercise caution and be prepared. We would like to offer a few safety tips in the event of a flood:
Evacuation: In the event of a suggested or enforced evacuation in your area, please comply and seek higher ground. Weather conditions can be unpredictable and it is always better to be safe than sorry!
Flooded Streets: ‘Turn around, don't drown’! The depth and current of moving floodwater is often deceptive. Safety is more important than a shortcut that can quickly turn into a disaster. NEVER try to walk, swim, or drive through flooded streets.
Be prepared: In the event of a flood or other disaster, have a predestined evacuation route and safe place on higher ground. An easily accessible emergency kit is also advisable to help yourself and others in time of need. A government sourced list of suggested emergency kit items can be found at https://www.ready.gov/kit.
