Flash Flood Safety
Wait out flash floods
Most storms in Southern Nevada only last a couple hours. If it’s raining and/or flash floods have been reported, stay inside. Don’t drive.
Stop for flooded streets
If you come upon a flooded street, stop immediately and gather your thoughts. Think so you will live. Plan an alternate route.
Never enter flooded streets
Always turn away from flooded streets. It only takes 12 inches of water to wash your car, truck or SUV off the road. Your life is at stake here. Turn around.
If you see flood waters approaching you on the road you’re already driving on, slow down and exit the road safely, as soon as you possibly can.
