With more rain expected in the coming days, emergency officials are reminding residents to avoid flooded roadways. Meade county Emergency Management Director Ron Dodson says that motorist should avoid driving through flooded roadways for several reasons.
“It may not look very deep, but it may in fact it may be more than 1 foot or 2,” Dodson said.
The same guidelines apply to flooded parking lots as well.
“If they fill up with water, you really don’t know how deep it is.”
Dodson offers the simple phrase “Turn Around, Don’t Drown” as a useful reminder.
“You really don’t know what you’re getting into until it’s too late.”
