Flash floods are the #1 weather killer in the United States!
Here are some flood terms you need to know:
FLASH FLOOD OR FLOOD WATCH
: Flash flooding or flooding is possible within the designated WATCH area. Be alert!
FLASH FLOOD OR FLOOD WARNING
: Flash flooding or flooding has been reported or is imminent take necessary precautions at once.
URBAN AND SMALL STREAM ADVISORY

FLOOD SAFETY TIPS
Go to higher ground away from flood plains.
Get out of areas subject to flooding. This includes dips, low spots, canyons, washes, etc.
Avoid already flooded and high velocity flow areas. Do not attempt to cross flowing streams.
If driving, be aware that the road bed may not be intact under flood waters. Turn around and go another way. NEVER drive through flooded roadways!
If the vehicle stalls, leave it immediately and seek higher ground. Rapidly rising water may engulf the vehicle and its occupants and sweep them away. Remember, it's better to be wet than dead!
Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize flood dangers.
Do not camp or park your vehicle along streams and washes, particularly during threatening conditions.
Children should NEVER play around high water, storm drains, viaducts, or arroyos
