Houston Flood Safety

 

Please monitor weather conditions and local news for vital information. If you are driving during a flooding event, do not attempt to cross-flowing streams, as vehicles may stall or you could lose control. Never drive your vehicle around warning signs for barricades.

The National Weather Service offers the following reminders during floods:

  • It is never safe to walk or drive into flood water.
  • As little as 6 inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult.
  • It takes 12 inches of rushing water to carry away a small car.
  • Two feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles, including SUVs and pickups.
