Carbondale Non-Bargaining Unit Employees Personnel Board recently issued the following announcement.
With the potential for heavy rain and flooding later this week, the Carbondale Office of Emergency Management would like to remind you of some Flash Flood Safety Tips:
Get to higher ground and avoid low spots in the road or areas prone to flooding.
Never cross barriers that protect from flooded areas. If your vehicle stalls, abandon it immediately!
Flood dangers are harder to recognize at night.
Flooding is the second leading weather-related cause of death.
2 feet of water will move your vehicle. 6 inches will sweep you off your feet.
