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.
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 flood insurance.
Know the location of the main elec-
trical 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
When a Flood
Warning is issued:
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 utilities.
Place important documents and
valuables in plastic and store them
in a safe place.
Flood water dangers:
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
After a flood:
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 them
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 quali-
fied person before turning on the
main electrical switch.
Punch holes in all containers left
outside to prevent water from set-
tling and these from becoming
breeding grounds for mosquitoes.
Purify water before using. Use chlo-
rine bleach or water purifying
tablets. Boil tap water for ten min-

Rescue workers recover the body of a victim of a ferry accident in the River Meghna in Munshiganj district, in
Bangladesh, on Friday. Rescuers have recovered dozens of bodies after a ferry capsised during a storm in a
river in central Bangladesh, officials said Friday. AP PHOTO
have recovered 54 bodies from a ferry
that sank in a river during a storm in
central Bangladesh, resuming their
search yesterday after protests by
relatives of people missing in the
Officials said that 12 people were
still unaccounted for, although there
has been confusion over how many
were aboard the ferry MV Miraz-4
when it sank Thursday in the River
Earlier Saturday, authorities called
the search off after retrieving 40 bodies,
but hundreds of relatives and local res-
idents protested at the scene of the
accident in Munshiganj district, forcing
authorities to announce that they would
continue to look for bodies.
"I haven t got my brother, where is
he? Why do authorities stop search-
ing?" asked Mohammad Moniruzza-
By late Saturday afternoon, a total
of 54 bodies had been recovered, said
Shamsuddoha Khandaker, chief of
Bangladesh s water transport author-
"We will continue our search," he
said. "We have towed the ferry to the
shore, but we will continue to search
for bodies in the waters."
There has been confusion over how
many passengers were on board the
sunken vessel. Ferry operators in
Bangladesh usually do not maintain a
list of passengers, and none was avail-
able in Thursday s disaster, said local
administrator Saiful Hasan.
Before 11 more bodies were recovered
after the search resumed yesterday,
police had estimated that at least 100
people were still missing.
Rescue diver Masudul Haque said
Friday evening that many bodies were
still trapped in cabin rooms.
"We have recovered the bodies main-
ly from the lower deck and other open
spaces, but could not open the doors
of the cabin rooms where many pas-
sengers took shelter after the storm
had hit," Haque said. "I tried to open
those doors but could not as huge vol-
umes of sand have buried many of the
Relatives of the missing and the dead
have been gathering since Thursday
on the banks the Meghna River, near
where the boat capsised. Several bodies,
covered in cloth, were laid out on the
ground yesterday. (AP)
