Floods are the leading cause of disaster-
related death in the Caribbean, but since
most can be forecast, you should have
time to prepare. Your Red Cross urges
you to get ready. There are simple steps
you can take to help protect your family
from a flood.
Are you ready for aflood?
Know your area's flood risk. If unsure, call your Red
Cross or Emergency Management Agency.
If you are in a risk area, investigate the feasibility of
Know the location of the main electrical breaker and
the gas and water valves in your home and ensure you
have a clear path to easily access them so that you
can shut them off in emergencies.
Monitor the radio for weather updates and evacuate
immediately if you are told to do so.
Move your furniture and valuables to higher floors
of your home or place them high if possible.
Bring in all loose items from outside, like garbage
cans and yard furniture for safe keeping.
Turn off the main electrical switch and other utili-
Place important documents and valuables in plastic
and store them in a safe place.
When a Flood Warning is issued:
Do not walk through flowing water. Just six inches
of moving water can knock you off your feet.
Never attempt to cross a swollen stream, river or
gully by foot or vehicle. The force of these water-
ways can have deadly consequences.
If your vehicle stalls in rising water, abandon it
immediately and climb to higher ground. A mere two
feet of water can float a large vehicle, even a bus.
Flood water dangers:
Clean and dry everything water-soaked. Flood
waters can pick up sewerage and chemicals from
roads, farms and factories. Spoiled food and flooded
medicines are health hazards. When in doubt, throw
Check appliances and motors for damage and do not
use them until they have been cleaned and dried.
Watch out for wild animals. Snakes and centipedes
that have been flooded out of their homes may seek
shelter in yours. Use a pole or a stick to poke and
turn items over and scare them away.
If your home was seriously affected by the floods
and you suspect your electrical wiring may have
been damaged, have it checked by a qualified per-
son before turning on the main electrical switch.
Punch holes in all containers left outside to prevent
water from settling and these from becoming breed-
ing grounds for mosquitoes.
Purify water before using. Use chlorine bleach or
water purifying tablets. Boil tap water for ten min-
