Turn Around, Don't Drown
Every year, Texans die from entering flooding areas or attempting to cross swollen rivers. It doesn't take but 8" of water moving quickly across the roadway to take a vehicle downstream. Texas Floodplain Managers Association came up with the "Turn Around, Don't Drown" slogan.
Think about it next time the barricades are up and you see the high water. Do not risk your life. Go around and find a safe route home. Your family and friends will be glad you did.
