After this long winter in Minnesota, we are hoping that the forecasted rain will bring May flowers! With this rain which nourishes the plants and trees, it also can cause damage to your home when it rains too fast or too much rain.
*NEVER drive around barricades that are blocking a flooded road.
*When there is flooding on the road, turn around! Don't attempt to drive through water on the roadway.
Facts from the National Weather Service about flooding on roadways:
-6" of rushing water on a road can knock down an adult.
-12" of rushing water on a road can pick up and carry a car away
-24" of rushing water on a road can pick up and carry away trucks and SUVs
Be careful out there in the next week as the forecast is saying we may receive 4" of rain.
