Its rainy season! As exciting as this can be for some who are tired of this constant sunshine here in southern California, it can also bring some events to be cautious about.
It’s not too common for flash floods to occur but in the case it is happening in your area here are some tips for you:
-Always be aware of your surroundings! Sometimes water can sneak up on you from behind.
-Avoid driving or going by foot through flood waters. You never know what is floating around in there.
-Fun fact: It only takes 6 inches of water to knock you down.
-Move to higher ground as soon as you get a chance.
-If you happen to be in your vehicle when the flood hits and it rises above your car, you can get out as long as the water is not moving and head to higher ground. If the water is moving it would be best to wait in the vehicle to avoid being swept away.
Enjoy the rain and stay safe!
