What to do during a flood
If a pipe has burst, the best thing for you to do is turn off the water and start the cleanup process. However, if you are dealing with a flood from a storm you might have to take a few different steps.
Move to higher ground: If a flash flood is going to happen, it’s best to move to higher ground immediately and wait for instructions or next steps.
Stay aware: Know in advance if there is going to be a flood so that you can prepare if necessary.
Stay away from flood water: Flood water can carry raw sewage, chemical waste and other disease spreading substances. If you come in contact with this type of water you should sanitize immediately.
Evacuate if necessary: It is best to turn off all utilities, including electrical appliances and evacuate the building if the flooding is really bad.
