The Highway Department reminds motorists that if they encounter a flooded roadway, be sure to "Turn Around, Don't Drown." According to the National Weather Service, most flash flooding deaths are vehicle related. Six inches of standing water is enough to cause passenger cars to stall and a foot of water will float many vehicles. Motorists should never drive through flooded roadways, especially if the water is moving rapidly, and never drive around the barriers warning you that the road is flooded. Also, motorists should refrain from removing any Road Closed or High Water signs that have been placed at affected areas by the Highway Department.
