Lots of flooding all around Illinois #TADD

Lotsa flooding going on around Illinois. Reported 34 counties and counting.

Remember: Turn Around, Don’t Drown!

Daytime is easy to spot these dangers, however nighttime will be incredibly difficult. Travel with caution and always check roadways before you venture out.

Please be safe.

Stop driving through flooded roadways! #TADD #OHFlood #OHWx #Prepared

Every time. Every. Single. Time.

I don’t get it. We preach the #TADD safety message so many times. But yet, it always happens every time we have a heavy rain.

TADDPeople

No kidding Sherlock.

C’mon! What else do we have to say to get people to listen!?!?!?!

Remember: It is NEVER safe to drive or walk into flood waters. #TADD

Kudos to WEWS News Channel-5 in highlighting the dangers of flooded roadways.

Just say it with me, “Turn Around, Don’t Drown! #TADD”

Again.

“Turn Around, Don’t Drown! #TADD”

Here’s a few free tips you can use to prepare for today severe weather:

  • Remove dead or rotting trees and branches that could fall and cause injury or damage during a severe thunderstorm.
  • Consider postponing outdoor activities.
  • Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage.
  • Break out your emergency preparedness kit and see if all flashlights are working. If not, get them in working order.
  • Charge all of your mobile devices including your cell phone now before the power goes out.

To get up to the minute updates during the Thunderstorm:

  • Use your battery operated NOAA Weather Radio for updates from the National Weather Service.
  • Cordless and wireless phones not connected to wall outlets are safe to use.

And after the storm passes, take these precautions as you survey the damage around your house:

  • Do NOT touch downed power lines. Assume all lines are charged and dangerous. Call your emergency services to handle safe removal of lines.
  • Wear log sleeved shirts and long pants with gloves and boots. Debris from storms are usually sharp and dangerous.
  • Power out? Check the power company’s website to see who else doesn’t have power here.
  • Never drive through a flooded roadway. Remember: Turn Around, Don’t Drown! #TADD

Feel free to share these tips with your neighbors too.
