Hurricane Preparedness Week: Inland Flooding 2

May 28, 2014

Remember, Turn around, Don’t drown; A mere six inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult. It only takes two feet of rushing water to carry away most vehicles including pickups and SUV’s; More tips and information: www.ready.gov/hurricanes

Please note that here in Hawai‘i, we need to stock water and supplies for at least 7-10 days. Most government websites recommend 3 days, and that is a reasonable supply if you live on the continental United States. Hawai‘i is dependent on container ships that take 7 days to get to Hawai‘i from Oakland or Los Angeles.
