10-01-15 News Release: Five Things to Know as Heavy Rains Approach Loudoun
Each year, more deaths occur due to flooding than from any other thunderstorm-related hazard. Why? The main reason is that people underestimate the force and power of water.
The Office of Emergency Management reminds residents to be aware of the force and power of water.
Many deaths occur in automobiles as people and their vehicles are swept downstream. Many of these drownings are preventable, but too many people continue to drive around barriers warning that roads are flooded.
Remember: whether you are driving or walking, if you come to a flooded road, stop and do not cross. Do not drive around barricades
. With water across the roadway, you cannot always determine the depth of the water or the condition of the road under the water. Six inches of moving water can knock a person down and a mere two feet of water can move a large vehicle such as a bus.
