Flood Awareness Week

This is flood awareness week in Virginia, a time to remind folks that flash flooding can be lethal.  The number one cause of flood-related fatalities is people driving through water-logged roads that look passable, but are not.

Localized urban and small stream flooding often occurs with downpours from thunderstorms, and conditions can turn in a matter of minutes. or even seconds. Something we all already know, but reminders can’t hurt.
