Roseau, Dominica: The Ministry of Health, Wellness and New Health Investment of Dominica shared the flood safety tips during the impending weather as a watch for Tropical Storm Fiona is in effect across the nation.
With the impending weather, please remember these flood safety tips:
Floods are among the most frequent and costly natural disasters. Flooding often occurs following a hurricane, storm, or several days of sustained rain. Some floods develop slowly, but flash floods occur suddenly due to rapidly rising water along a stream or low-lying area.
As with any disaster, it is critical to be as prepared as possible. Be sure your family has an evacuation plan, ensure you have adequate emergency supplies, and keep important documents in a waterproof bag or container.
