... Severe weather awareness week in Minnesota and Wisconsin...

This is severe weather awareness week in Minnesota and Wisconsin.
The topic today is flash flooding.

Flooding and flash flooding are the leading thunderstorm related
killers. Last year 84 people were killed by flooding across the
United States.

Flash flooding is a rapid rise in flood waters and can catch people
off guard... especially at night. Excessive or repeat thunderstorm
rains can lead to flash flooding and close roads that people
normally drive through. Flood waters can also erode sections of Road
causing gaps or dangerous holes.

Never drive into or cross high water. The flow of fast moving water
is often too strong to maintain control. Two feet of water will make
most cars float.

When you come across flood waters... turn around. Dont drown.
