Early Warning Network
Our summer storm season brings with it severe weather and the possibility of flash flooding. Many drivers don't understand the risks when driving into floodwater and often feel pressured to do so whether it be because of the need to collect the kids from school or the strong desire to get home during severe weather. Driving through flooded roads can be fatal - the dangers include:
- being washed from a causeway - less than 60 centimetres of slow moving water can wash away any type of car, even a four wheel drive
- getting snagged by submerged debris
- stalling in rising water
- collapsed causeways or roads washing away without warning
Remember, if it's flooded, forget it! For more information on preparing your 'Plan B', check out the Queensland Government's floodwater safety website - www.qld.gov.au/floodwatersafety.
