The tropical depression has landed, rain is giong to be severe, under no circumstance drive on a flooded part of a road, flash floods are killers.

The word "VADO" means an area where water crosses a road, on top of road not under.

Some times you can not see if the concrete road over the culvert has washed away or how deep the water is.

Be very carefull arround running streams, the water can and does rise very fast!

Also be aware of where water tends to run on the hills or in streets, you can be caught in fast running water.

The example I give is:
When you are at the beach and you are on the surf where the waves stop and start to back in, remember the force of the retreating water arround your feet? trying to drag you with the water?

It only takes inches to loose your footing and a little more to drag a vehicle down river!

Good luck to all with the rains
