Here my street turns into a river every time it's heavy rains & we get warnings for flash floods & major ponding on roads. I know in FL (2002-04) we had excessive water during some rains and you couldn't drive down any street without risking stalling & drowning & sometimes it happened quickly because of a foot or more of water in intersections. The question is, if you found out you couldn't get out, what would you do?
We’re on high enough ground that we’d just shelter in place and call for rescue. My son is in search and rescue, and that’s the recommmendation for our neighborhood.
