Canadian Flood facts:
66% of flood deaths occur in vehicles, and most happen when drivers
make the single, fatal mistake of trying to navigate through flood waters.
Just six inches of rapidly moving flood water can knock a person down.
A mere two feet of water can float a
large vehicle…even a bus.
One-third of flooded roads and bridges
are so damaged by water that any
vehicle trying to cross stands only a 50%
chance of making it to the other side.
Floods are the number-one natural
disaster.
A heavy rainfall can result in flooding,
particularly when the ground is still fro-
zen or is already saturated from previous
storms.
Flash flooding – in which warning time
is extremely limited – can be caused
by hurricanes, violent storms or dams
breaking.
