Echo: Iowa Drivers Beware of Flood Waters
According to an AP article shared by the Daily Nonpariel, the record rainfall in Iowa is causing flood conditions that could stick around for at least the next week.
So, what should you do if you come across a flooded street? Don’t drive down it, even if you think your car can handle it. The average vehicle can be swept off in just a foot of water, and a man driving an SUV in flooded waters died in northeast Iowa this week.
Plus, flooded roads can collapse. Pay attention to any signage and barricades. If you must drive down a flooded street, Progressive has more tips on their website.
