Basic flooding safety tips from ready.gov.

Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and 1 foot of water can sweep your vehicle away. If there is a chance of flash flooding, move immediately to higher ground. Flash floods are the #1 cause of weather-related deaths in the US.

Remember, NEVER drive through floodwaters.
