Know where your children and family members are at all times. Do not leave children to look after younger children for long periods. Stay especially close with younger children and do not let them go swimming and playing in areas where flash floods can occur rapidly. Protect children by keeping them inside during extreme weather and away from floodwaters and damaged buildings. Protective shoes and clothes should be worn during disaster and clean-up activities. Seek additional information on the radio or from others so you can keep your family safe.
