The extreme storms and flooding that have occurred this week have left the city swimming in rain water and puddles remaining from the flood. Although you may think you are safe since the rain has ceased, you still need to be very careful when you encounter flood water around the city. The most important thing to consider is that even though a puddle or flooded area may look shallow, you should avoid coming into contact with the water whether you are walking or driving. According to the U.S. National Weather Service, it only takes 12 inches of flowing water to carry off a small car and only 18 to 24 inches to carry off a larger vehicle. The best advice you could follow would be to turn around when you see you are heading towards an area of flood water, rather than trying to drive through it. Suzanne Brown Agency cares about your safety and we would love to speak with you about your flood insurance, home insurance, or auto insurance if you are still suffering with water damage for the flood or if you have any questions regarding your coverage.
