The only way to be saved from the flood: not to live in the flooded areas.The ministry, for example, reported that more than 60% of potentially dangerous areas populated and built up with houses.Therefore, before you begin construction or agree to buy - make sure that the surrounding areas does not fall in the risk zone.Given the nature of the disaster, no other way to completely protect yourself - no.
If you still find yourself in a risk area, the first thing you need to do - to collect all the important documents in a waterproof bag and put in the easily accessible location.It makes sense to do all that is valuable to alienate most of the floor.Be sure to have at least some portions of harvested dry rations and deferred money.
Make sure every member of your family knows how to turn off the electricity (to short-circuit wiring in the water is dangerous as anything else) and gas;that all are aware of the evacuation assembly points (information can be obtained from local authorities).
Equip easy access to the roof.Ladder - not the best choice, becausein strong currents it can be reset.It is safest to fix stage right on the walls of the house or to think way out from inside the premises.
Purchase swimming facilities.At the same time think about: fishing boat will take up a lot of space, but will always be ready for use.When a flash flood cook inflatable raft will not have time (especially because you may need an electric pump).
explore the area.You must know all the hills and just tall objects (saving may be even a tree house).Be clear about the behavior of the river, why the flooding could occur, how much it will last, in what direction goes for.The more you know, the more will be able to take informed decisions at the critical moment (for example, do not have to believe the rumors about the duration of the flood).
