Illinois Emergency Management Agency highlight safety during flood safety week
THIS IS FLOOD SAFETY WEEK AND KEVIN SUR WITH THE ILLINOIS EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT AGENCY SAYS
EVEN A SMALL AMOUNT OF WATER CAN PUT YOU IN DANGER.
"Never walk through, swim, or drive through flooded waters. That is inherently dangerous..well first off sweeping you away and also in the water. And so we tell people
to remind them: turn around, don't drown."
SUR SAYS YOU SHOULD ALSO AVOID BRIDGES OVER FAST MOVING FLOOD WATERS. LEARN MORE ABOUT FLOODING INCLUDING CLEAN UP, ONLINE AT: https://ready.illinois.gov/
