Flood Safety Reminder

Flooding affects all parts of North Carolina - from Manteo to Murphy. As we move through the peak of hurricane season, please continue to exercise caution when traveling on wet road ways and never drive your vehicle through moving water.

Remember to “Turn around, don’t drown.” Your car or SUV can become buoyant in as little as 18 inches of water. Once your vehicle loses contact with the road, the water can easily push it sideways. Some vehicles will even roll over, trapping those inside as the vehicle washes downstream.
