Turn Around Don't Drown


Subject:
Weather , Floods

Description:
This safety campaign advises drivers and walkers to turn around when they encounter a flooded road (or flooded canyon, wash, or other low spot) rather than continuing through the water and risking a washed-out road or being swept downstream by the water. Includes facts about flash flooding, noting that "[e]xcept for heat related fatalities, more deaths occur from flooding than any other hazard." Includes downloadable outreach materials. From the National Weather Service, Southern Region Headquarters.
