This week’s weather forecast brings potential for heavy rains and flooding, and Fort Worth’s Stormwater Management Division is working to help residents protect themselves from this hazard.
Each year, more deaths occur due to flooding than from any other thunderstorm-related hazard because people underestimate the force and power of water. It is hard to tell the depth of water or the condition of a road when submerged, but it is easy for automobiles to be swept downstream by fast-moving flood waters.
Whether you are driving or walking, if you come to a flooded road, Turn Around Don’t Drown.
