Can I drive during a flood?
The Met Office explains that, “if the road is flooded, turn around and find another route.“The number one cause of death during flooding is driving through flood water, so the safest advice is turn around, don't drown.”
Flood water can also damage your car, with the Met Office adding, “Flood water also contains hidden hazards which can damage your car, and just an egg-cupful of water sucked into your car's engine will lead to severe damage.”
The public are also advised to stay away from swollen rivers and not to walk through flood water.
