The Fire Department adds:
Do not walk or drive through floodwaters. Never attempt to drive through a flooded road. As little as 6 inches of water can cause you to lose control of your car.
If your building floods, move to a higher floor but do not enter a closed attic.
Residents in flood-prone areas can move their vehicles to Saugatuck Avenue Train Station Lot #8.
Do not go sightseeing! Observe all caution tape!
