Hurricane season is in full effect and this weekend we will have Hurricane Harvey paying the Texas coast a visit, leaving Houston in the path of a major rain event capable of causing severe flooding.
This weekend is the time to be prepared and take all warnings serious ahead of landfall near Corpus.
Here’s a few tips on how you should prepare for severe flooding:
Make sure your vehicle has enough fuel, keep all emergency numbers handy, insurance policy ready, and items such as batteries and flashlights nearby.
Deaths occur mainly outside of the home, remember that it is hard to see potholes and other dangerous high water zones when the roads are covered in water. If you do not need to go out, DON’T!
If you know that you are in a flood zone, pack your things and seek higher ground. Do NOT risk it. A lot of rain is expected.
