Flood safety reminders

Some flood safety reminders during the flood:
Avoid flooded areas with flowing water, don't try to cross anything that looks like a stream.

It just takes six inches of fast  flowing water to sweep you off your feet

Don't allow children to play near high water

Don't drive on flooded roads, just a foot can float most automobiles

After the flood:
Make sure buildings are stable before you enter them - sticking doors are sign of problems
Check the foundation for any loose or missing blocks, bricks, or mortar
Inside your home assess plaster and drywall, any swelling could be a sign of damage
Be sure to take pictures for insurance claims
