WATER ON THE ROAD: TURN AROUND, DON'T DROWN

With heavy rains moving through portions of Texas this week, the National Weather Service and the Texas Division of Emergency Management, Texas Department of Public Safety urge Texans to avoid low water crossings and driving on flooded roadways. When there’s water running across a road, drivers should always turn around and choose a different route. These are the facts:

Six inches of water can cause tires to lose traction and begin to slide.

Twelve inches of water can float many cars. Two feet of rushing water will carry off pick-up trucks, SUVs and most other vehicles.

Water across a road may hide a missing segment of roadbed or a missing bridge.

In flash floods, waters rise so rapidly they may be far deeper by the time you are halfway across, trapping you in your vehicle.

Flash floods are especially treacherous at night when it is very difficult to see how deep waters may be or how fast water is rising.

Floodwater weakens roadbeds. Drivers should proceed cautiously after waters have receded, since the road may collapse under the weight of the vehicle.

Lives can be saved every year if Texas drivers follow this one rule: when there’s water on the road, turn around, don’t drown.

Less fog needed more rain wanted. Bring it on. The sunk pump under my house hasn't had to run in a year and a half. Need to make sure it still works.
