Water and Electricity Don’t Mix!
In Texas, flash floods can occur without very much warning. How can you protect yourself and your family when bad weather hits?
BEFORE:

  • Have an emergency kit in an accessible, preferably high-ground place. The kit should include flashlights, a first aid kit, rubber gloves, battery-operated radio and extra batteries, rainboots, and a dry wooden stick (or other long object) so that you can flip fuse switches safely if necessary.
  • Clearly mark all fuses in the fuse box so you’re familiar with the switches and where they lead
  • Unplug all appliances and bring large ones (eg: washer or dryer) to higher ground, if possible. You can also set them on concrete blocks.

DURING: 

  • Keep away from outlets and electrical appliances, especially if they are covered by water.
  • If you have small children, keep them away from outlets and cords
  • If power lines go down, notify your utility company or the authorities
  • Don’t use water, flush toilets, or take a shower unless absolutely necessary, to reduce the burden on sewer lift stations.

AFTER: 

  • Don’t go into a flooded basement or room unless you’re ABSOLUTELY SURE the electricity is off. If you aren’t sure, do not enter and call an electrician or your utility company.
  • Don’t plug in any generators. It could cause a fire, damage to the outlets, or cause electricity to flow into a nearby electrical line, endangering crews and other homes around you.
  • Don’t touch any electrical devices that are wet or may have been damaged, including outlets or cords. Call your electrician or utility company.
  • If you see any downed power lines, don’t go near them! Report them to your utility company or the authorities.
  • When the water has receded, give 3 days or more for appliances to dry out completely before attempting to use them again.
  • If your breaker box or main fuse box got wet, you must have an electrician check your wiring before you attempt to use electricity.
