Turn Around Don’t Drown

In the wake of the heavy rains that are predicted to move through the area Bryan Police again remind residents to be aware of the force and power of water.

To many people continue to drive around barriers warning that roads are flooded.

Whether you are driving or walking, if you come to a flooded road, stop and do not cross. With water across the roadway, you cannot always determine the depth of the water or the condition of the road under the water.

Six inches of moving water can knock a person down and a mere two feet of water can move a large vehicle such as a bus.
