What should you do to prepare? If you live in a flood prone area, pack a "go kit." This would include gathering whatever you can quickly put in your car if you must evacuate on short notice. This could include:
- Prescription medicines.
- A couple of changes of clothes.
- Essential papers/credit cards, etc.
- A full tank of fuel.
But the number one cause of deaths in flash floods is people who are perfectly safe driving into a flooded area. Please don't be a statistic. Turn around, don't drown!
