The Flash Flood Watch
Wildfires remove a lot of the landscape that holds back flooding from rains. The small bushes and grasses keep the water from running and flooding homes in the are of Phoenix.
Watch for flooding during rain storms!
The great city has created a lot of culverts and other systems to keep flooding from your homes but it can't always be relied on after wildfires. There will be excess water that could cause these water repelling systems to fail. Here are some tips for flash flooding:
- Move to higher ground during a rain storm.
- Never try to drive or swim in flooded areas.
- Watch out for snakes and other critters that are flooded from their homes.
- Have an evacuation plan for your home and family.
