“As we begin to see roadways impacted by high waters, we urge all residents to exercise caution,” Emergency Services Director Robert Hemminger said. “If you must leave your home and you come across a flooded street, take an alternative route.

“The average automobile can be swept off the road in 12 inches of moving water. Attempting to drive through water may stall your engine and potentially cause irreversible damage if you try to restart the engine.”
