These pictures taken today are a reminder - avoid flooded areas! Driving thru 6 inches of standing water can cause vehicles to lose control & stall. Twelve inches of water is enough to make most small vehicles float. Don’t drive through flooded roads – turn around, don’t drown!

Conducir a través de 6 pulgadas de agua estancada puede hacer que los vehículos pierdan el control y que el motor deje de funcionar. 12 pulgadas de agua son suficientes para hacer flotar a la mayoría de los vehículos pequeños. No conduzca en carreteras inundadas!
