This is an important message from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
After a storm, many roads may be flooded. Avoid driving through these areas, especially when the water is moving fast. Drownings can result from driving through water. In fact, as little as six inches of water may cause you to lose control of your vehicle, and as little as two feet of water will carry most cars away. To learn more, call the CDC at 800-CDC-INFO.
