PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...  
 
EXCESSIVE RUNOFF FROM MELTING SNOW MAY CAUSE FLOODING OF SMALL  
CREEKS AND STREAMS, URBAN AREAS, HIGHWAYS, STREETS AND UNDERPASSES  
AS WELL AS OTHER DRAINAGE AREAS AND LOW LYING SPOTS. THIS IS MOST  
LIKELY IN AREAS WHERE DRAINS ARE CLOGGED WITH ICE, SNOW, OR SLUSH.  
STANDING WATER ON ROADS INCREASES THE THREAT OF VEHICLE  
HYDROPLANING.  
 
SNOWMELT IS VERY EFFICIENT AT INCREASING SOIL MOISTURE, WHICH  
INCREASES THE THREAT OF LANDSLIDES. LANDSLIDES CAN EASILY BURY OR  
DESTROY A HOUSE OR VEHICLE. IF YOU ARE OUTDOORS, GET OUT OF ITS  
PATH. IF YOU ARE INDOORS, TAKE COVER UNDER A STURDY PIECE OF  
FURNITURE.
