Senator Hannon’s Flood Tips


Flood Watch – Flooding is possible in the designated area.

Flood Warning – Flooding has been reported or is imminent.


Be Prepared!

- Stock up on food and other essential items in order to avoid treacherous driving conditions.

- Make sure all basement and other low windows are closed and sealed.

- Keep your automobile fueled. In the event your neighborhood looses power, your local gas station may not be able to pump fuel.

- Make sure to bring all possessions inside your house such as lawn furniture, garbage cans, children's toys, etc. in case of high winds.

Travel with Care

- DO NOT attempt to drive over a flooded road. Find an alternate route.

- As little as six inches of water may cause you to lose control of your vehicle.

- Driving too fast through low water can cause you vehicle to hydroplane and lose contact with the road surface.

In the event of an emergency, remember to dial
