|When a flash flood warning is issued by the National Weather Service count on Storm Team Three to provide you of an immediate Severe Weather Alert.
Flash flooding can occur without warning…suddenly and instantaneously following a powerful storm. Flash flood waves, moving at incredible speed, can roll boulders, tear out trees, destroy buildings and bridges, and scour out new channels. Killing walls of water can reach heights of 10 to 20 feet.
When a Flash Flood Warning is imminent, act quickly to save yourself. You may have only seconds.
*Go to high ground immediately.
Prepare Ahead of the Storm:
*Store drinking water in clean bathtubs and in various containers. Water service may be interrupted.
During the flood:
*Avoid areas subject to sudden flooding.
After the flood:
*Do not use food that has come in contact with flood waters.
