If you encounter water across the road or barricades, turn around. Do not drive or walk through moving or standing water.
- Shallow moving water can sweep pedestrians off their feet
- Vehicles can be stalled, stranded, or swept away when crossing water
- Water depth is hard to judge, and the consequences of a misjudgement can be fatal.
This flooding is expected to continue for several days, and water levels may rise and cover additional roads without notice.
