Flooded Area Roads Pose a Danger

by Deirdre Blake posted May 8 2013 6:23PM
Dozens of local roads are still partially or fully closed because of standing water and drivers should be careful. 
Kim Hylander with the Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue says not following warnings is just dangerous. It takes as little as six inches of water to float a car. When drivers ignore signs and that happens, they engine can fail, they can become trapped and need to be rescued. In addition to being costly to repair flood damaged cars, your life can't just be replaced. 
If you approach a closed road, always find an alternate route.
