Street Flooding

– Drive with caution. Cars may flood in low-lying areas. Ponding on roadways may increase risk of hydroplaning.

– Pay attention to the weather.

– Rain may move repeatedly across the same area, causing a rapid rise on creeks and bayous. However, creeks and bayous are not likely to exceed their banks.
