SAFETY

  • WHILE DRIVING: Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into areas where the water covers the roadway. Floodwaters are often deeper than they appear. Just 1 foot of flowing water is powerful enough to sweep vehicles off the road. Do not drive through flood water. Turn around, don’t drown.
  • WATCHES AND WARNINGS: The National Weather Service is the best source for weather updates and has issued a flood warning to include Larimer County until 9:30 p.m. today. The following terms are commonly used by the National Weather Service:
    • Watch – Severe weather is possible – be alert.
    • Warning – severe weather has been reported or imminent – take precautions immediately.
  • EMERGENCY NOTIFICATIONS: Sign up at leta911.org to receive emergency notifications for Larimer County on landlines, cell phones, or as text or email messages. For more information, go to http://www.fcgov.com/floodwarningsystem call 970.221.6700 or TDD 970.224.6003.
