Driving into flood waters is one of the most dangerous things one can do behind the wheel. Never drive through flooded roadways, especially if the water is moving rapidly, and never drive around the barriers warning you that the road is flooded.
Motorists should also use caution as tree limbs, gravel and other debris is littering the roadway from all of the heavy rains.
