Floods are one of the most common disasters in Kentucky. They can affect just one neighborhood or span several counties or states. River floods grow slowly over several days of heavy rain. Flooding can even occur when it is not raining. You need to know what to do when a flood occurs no matter where you live. Knowing what to do is even more important if you live in a low-lying area, near a river or a dam.

Before a Flood
* Learn about the chance of flooding in the places where you live and work.
* If you live in areas that flood frequently, stockpile emergency building materials such as: plywood, plastic sheeting, lumber nails, hammer and saw, pry bar, shovels and sandbags.
* Know and practice the evacuation routes from your home and work.

During a Flood
* Listen to the radio for news and official orders.
* If you have time secure your home:
-Bring in outdoor chairs and tables.
-Move important items to an upper level.
-Unplug appliances and turn off main power.
* If officials order evacuation, leave immediately!

After a Flood
* Stay away from floodwater, it may be contaminated.
* Return home only after authorities say it is safe.
* Throw away any food that touched floodwater.
* Clean and remove germs from wet items.

Remember: "Turn Around - Don't Drown" NEVER drive or walk into floodwater! Did You Know?: Six inches of water can sweep you off your feet and two feet of water can sweep a car off the road.

The Red parking lot was released to the VA CBOC construction contractor Feb. 6, as it begins to mobilize and prepare for the installation of the fence around its construction site, which encompasses the entire Red parking lot.

As such there are barriers currently in the parking lot to block it off--please don't remove the barriers. The construction contractor is not liable for any damage to the vehicles during its period of mobilization.

Additionally, if any vehicle is caught in the fencing they may be towed at their own expense.

Please use one of the other parking lots around IRAHC for parking.
