Never drive, walk or ride through a flooded road.
If you are trapped by flash floodwater in a vehicle, you need to decide on the safest action for yourself in that situation.
This could be to remain in the vehicle, leave the vehicle and seek higher ground or to climb on top of the vehicle.
No one action is a guarantee that you will survive. Call ‘000’ (triple zero). This is a life-threatening situation.
