Public Service Announcement: What Not to Do in the Event of a Flood
Mary Caldwell sheds light on the threat of flooding, which can take a back seat at times to the power of extreme weather events like tornadoes and hurricanes. But, writes Caldwell, "more people are killed in the U.S. by flooding each year than are killed by tornadoes, hurricanes or lightning, according to The National Severe Storms Laboratory."
Caldwell's coverage serves as a manner of public service announcement, detailing the risks of flooding and illuminating some of the risks involved with decisions like driving or walking into flooded areas.
