  • Use extreme caution near the river and STAY CLEAR of rising rivers. 
  • Flooded roads should be avoided. TURN AROUND, DON’T DROWN.
  • Remember to maintain your home and business exterior storm drains and downspouts to allow water to flow safely to drains and not into your buildings.
  • Those close to streams, creeks and rivers need to pay attention to potential rising waters and potential ice jams.
  • During winter months – thawing and precipitation will cause shifting ice and rivers to rise sharply – winter ice jams may lead to unprecitable flooding in areas.
