Flooding is one of the leading causes of weather related deaths in the U.S.

 

These photos of the same location show how the actual water depth can be deceptive once the street is flooded.

Data from NOOA:

"On average, flooding claims nearly 90 lives each year. More than half of the deaths occur inside motor vehicles as people attempt to drive on flooded roadways. This happens because people underestimate the force and power of water, especially when it is moving. It is impossible to tell the exact depth of water covering a roadway or the condition of the road below the water.

 

 

"Just six inches of fast-moving water can knock over and carry off an adult. Twelve inches of water can float a small car.

"If that water is moving, it can carry that car away. Eighteen to twenty-four inches of flowing water can carry away most vehicles, including large SUVs.

"This is especially true at night when your vision is more limited. It is never safe to drive or walk through flood waters."

Any time you're at a flooded road, walkway, or path, follow this simple rule: Turn Around - Don’t Drown.
