Flash Floods

Conditions - Flash Floods Comedy Class ImageAccording to the Texas DOT, flash flooding is the leading cause of weather-related deaths in Texas. Many of these deaths are preventable, but too many people drive around barriers and ignore warning signs that warn of flood danger. Don’t move, tamper with or drive around barriers blocking a low-water crossing. Penalties range from $200 to $1,000 and/or two years in jail.

People underestimate the force and power of water. As little as six inches of water can float some vehicles. If you encounter a flooded road, Turn Around, Don’t Drown.

Hydroplaning is another roadway condition that reduces the friction between your tires and the road. Slow down when there is a lot of water on the road to avoid hydroplaning. If you feel your vehicle start to hydroplane reduce your speed (gently) and avoid turning or heavy braking unless necessary. Any abrupt maneuvers could cause the vehicle to loose control.

Not a good idea.


Flash Flood Safety Tips:


  • Do not attempt to cross flowing streams.
  • Avoid areas already flooded, especially if the water is flowing fast.
  • Be extra cautious at night when it is harder to see flood dangers.
  • If there is flooding get to higher ground.
  • Avoid parking or camping next to flowing streams.
  • Monitor Weather radio, such as NOAA for weather conditions.
