Find out about the worst flood in your area and how high the
flood waters reach. Would it reach your home?

Floods can serously affect transport lines with airports
closed,roads submerged and bridges washed away.

Animals and crops get drowned and washed away and
sometimes soil is saturated for months afterwards,
preventing new planting.

WHAT TO DO?

Keep valuables and some food
and water above the high watermark. Attics or upstairs
rooms are good places for storage, as long as there is
easy access.

Know how to reach the
nearest high ground.

Animals can swim well. Do not
leave them in confined areas
or pens. Open gates so that
animals can escape.

Listen to weather reports and update for advice
and instructions.

Take your emergency kit with you if you have to
leave your home.
