Flooding in Charles County, MD and Oxon Hill, MD
Floods are one of the most common disasters in the United States. No matter where you are located there is always potential for flooding. In the last five years FEMA reported that all 50 states had experience floods or flash floods. Floods cause more damage than any other natural disaster every year. Here are some flood safety tips…
- Stay away from flood waters. As little as six inches of flowing water can sweep you off your feet, and not in a good way!
- DO NOT drive over a flooded road. If you get stuck on a flooded road and the water is rising get out of the vehicle and move. Two feet of moving water can easily sweep your car away.
- Keep children out of the water. The water could be contaminated.
