Severe Weather, Flood Pt. 2


Severe Weather Preparedness 2022: Flash Flooding, Pt. 2

Because flash flooding can be dangerous, and because it is a hazard we can experience in Johnston County, knowing how to respond during a flood can make all the difference.

If You are Under a Flash Flood Warning:

  • SEEK SHELTER immediately
  • Avoid walking, swimming, or driving through flood waters. If you see water on the roads, DO NOT drive through it. TURN AROUND, DON'T DROWN.
  • OBEY traffic signs and DO NOT remove barricades
  • MONITOR weather updates and orders from authorities. You might need to evacuate, seek higher ground, or stay in place depending on the nature of the flooding and other conditions.
