From the National Weather Service:
Event: Flash Flood Watch
The storm might turn out to be no big deal, but are you ready if the power goes out for an extended period? Check out this video from Capt. Barrett Baker of the Tucson Fire Department or visit Be Prepared Tucson.
From our friends at the Southern Arizona Red Cross:
Do not walk through flowing water. Drowning is the number one cause of flood deaths. Most of these drownings occur during flash floods. Six inches of moving water can knock you off your feet. Use a pole of stick to make sure that the ground is still there before you go through an area where the water is not flowing.
Remember that over the next few days, our area is expecting severe storms. Most flash flood deaths happen in vehicles. Moving water as little as one or two feet deep will carry away most vehicles and can knock a person off their feet. Keep children away from creeks and washes when heavy rain is in the area. Be especially careful at night when water depth and road conditions are harder to see.
The advice from our Fire Department is: WHEN IN DOUBT, WAIT IT OUT!!
