This week it looks all gloomy and rainy no matter what area you live in the United States there is no way of moving around a flood. Here are a few tips when a flood may occur.
-Stay away from floodwaters. If you come up on a flowing stream where water is above your ankles, stop, turn around and go another way. Six inches of swiftly moving water can sweep you off of your feet.
-Keep children out of the water. They are curious and often lack judgment about running water or contaminated water.
If you approach a flooded road while driving, turn around and go another way. If you are caught on a flooded road and waters are riding rapidly around you, get out of the car quickly and move to higher ground. Most cars can be swept away by less than two feet of moving water.
If a flood does occur in your area you can always call SERVPRO of Kempsville/Military Circle as we will gladly help. We are open 24/7, and 365 days a year.
