Safety Precautions
Do not drive through water – it is difficult to determine how deep the water is, or if the road is stable.

It is best to avoid driving unless necessary.

Do not wade in flooded waters.

Treat non-functioning traffic signals as a 4-way stop.
If you see a road closed, please follow the detour signs.

Avoid any downed or hanging power lines - they may be live.

If you are using a generator – be sure to keep it OUTSIDE in the open. Never use a generator indoors or in your garage; it gives off toxic fumes.

Stay tuned to your local television and radio stations for information.
