Flooding

“Turn around, don’t drown.”floodFlooding is the most common natural hazard in Hawai’i.

Do not drive or walk through flood waters!

– It only takes 6 inches of moving water to knock you off your feet.

– 12 inches of water can float a car/small SUV; 18 inches can sweep large vehicles away

Do not drive around barricades!

– Water may be deeper than it looks and may be hiding hazards:

– sharp objects, electrical wires, chemicals, etc.
