We see plenty of wet summer afternoons in El Paso County, and heavy rain can mean high water and flash floods. If you’re out and about in a downpour, remember to NEVER underestimate the power of fast-moving water.

GET THIS…

• 6 inches of fast-moving water can knock over and carry away an adult.
• 12 inches of fast-moving water can carry away a small car.
• 2 feet of fast-moving water can carry away most SUVs.

Just remember to NEVER DRIVE OR WALK INTO FLOOD WATERS and DON'T DRIVE AROUND BARRICADES. It's always best to turn around and find an alternate route.
