Road Closings for the WKM Viewing Area Due to Flooding (UPDATED)

February 26, 2018

 

Here are the WKM viewing  area road closings as of  1:00 PM, February 26, 2018. We will update this list as new closings become available to us.

Each year, more deaths occur due to flooding than from any other thunderstorm related hazard. People underestimate the force and power of water.

Many of the deaths occur in automobiles as they are swept downstream. Of these drownings, many are preventable, but too many people continue to drive around the barriers that warn you the road is flooded.

A mere 6 inches of fast-moving flood water can knock over an adult. It takes just 12 inches of rushing water to carry away a small car, while 2 feet of rushing water can carry away most vehicles. It is NEVER safe to drive or walk into flood waters. Below is a list of road closings due to flooding.
