In the event of a flood on campus,

  • Do NOT attempt to shut off electricity if any water is present.  Water and live electrical wires can be lethal.
  • Do not use flooded appliances or electrical outlets until they have been checked by the local power authority.
  • If the flood is outside, avoid the flooded area as the ground below may be unsettled and could cave in.
  • Never cross a flooded area. If you are on foot, fast water could sweep you away.
  • If you are in a car, do not drive through flood waters. The water could be deeper that it looks.
