With heavy rain in the forecast, Loudoun County public safety officials
remind everyone to be aware of the force and power of water.

Many deaths occur in automobiles as people and their vehicles are swept
downstream. Many of these drownings are preventable, but too many people
continue to drive even if the roads are flooded. Whether you are driving or
walking, if you come to a flooded road, stop. Do not cross the road. Turn
around immediately and find an alternate route.

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. Turn around. Don=92t drown!

information and more news from Loudoun County, sign up for Alert Loudoun at
