Precautionary/Preparedness Actions:

Do not drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. The water depth may be too great to allow your car to cross safely.  Move to higher ground. Locations especially vulnerable to flooding include Marine Drive near Polaris Point, Route 4 north of Pago Bay and the Route 4 intersection near Agueda Johnson Middle School in Ordot.

Find alternate routes. It takes only a few inches of swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.

To report flooding, have the nearest law enforcement agency relay your report to the National Weather Service forecast office.
