Several vehicles have been reported stalled after attempting to drive in flooded areas today. Motorists are reminded to “Turn around, don’t drown.” Never drive into a flooded roadway. Even a small amount of water can stall or carry away a vehicle. When a roadway is immersed, it is very difficult to estimate its depth, especially at night. Flooding can also conceal damaged road surfaces, culverts, railings and debris.
