Turn around, Don't drown

Mar 19, 2012

With many inches of rain expected, emergency managers warn people not to drive or walk into rushing floodwaters. Severe storms are possible with this system, but Tulsa Area Emergency Management Agency Director Roger Joliff says the biggest threat is flash flooding. He says even if rushing water doesn't look deep, it's best not to take a chance. Turn around and find another route.


Joliffe reminds people that it’s been a while since the area has received this much rainfall….and so driving carefully on wet roads, even places where there isn’t flooding, is very important.
