Dorothy: this is Kansas. #HurricanePrep #PrepareAthon
Hurricane Preparedness in Kansas? Yep. Everywhere. Inland Flooding can occur far in from the coasts, and Hurricanes can cause rising water in rivers and tributaries feeding open water. OK, so perhaps not Kansas (however, our Tornado Safety information may be timely for Mid-Westerners!) But take inland flooding seriously... Hurricane Preparedness means inland safety as well - not just the coastlines. Don’t get caught by dangerous flood waters, have an evacuation plan!
- You may have to evacuate quickly due to a hurricane. Learn your evacuation routes & identify where you will stay #HurricanePrep
- If you rely on public transportation, contact your local emergency management agency about evac info ahead of a hurricane. #PrepareAthon
- Hurricanes can cause extensive flood damage in coastal & inland areas- Make a #HurricanePrep plan: www.Ready.gov/hurricanes
- Turn around, don’t drown. Two feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles including trucks and SUVs #HurricanePrep
- Driving through flooded roadways is dangerous. Check out this @NWS public service announcement to see why: http://bit.ly/1Ggz3PH
