PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS
----------------------------------

* EVACUATIONS:

RECOVERY PHASE - Do not enter evacuated areas until officials have 
given the all clear to return.


* OTHER PREPAREDNESS INFORMATION:
Remain safely sheltered until conditions improve. When going outside 
be sure to stay away from downed power lines, hazardous debris and 
flooded areas.

Check on your neighbors. If necessary, help them connect with their 
points of contact.

Do not attempt to return to evacuated areas until local authorities 
have inspected roads and bridges and have given the all clear. 
Hazards like downed power lines and trees, washed out roads, 
continued flooding in low lying areas and non-functioning traffic 
lights make travel difficult. 

Allow extra time for emergency vehicles to reach you as they navigate 
road hazards.

Do not attempt to return to evacuated areas until local authorities 
give the all clear. Allow time for officials to inspect bridges and 
overpasses and to mark washed-out roads.


Problems with sewer backups can further contaminate standing flood 
waters. Keep children away from flood waters. Also, listen for boil 
water alerts as tap water may have become non-potable.

Be alert for potential flooding from rising rivers and streams which 
may have yet to crest. Remain informed of the latest river forecasts 
and heed any flood watches and warnings.

Be alert for flooded roads which could be compromised or littered 
with debris. Avoid travel until water levels subside and roads have 
been cleared. Do not drive through places where flood waters cover 
the road. Turn around, don't drown!
