Avoid entering flood waters. You can step into an open sewer line, drains, and gutters. You are advised to wear suitable footwear and use a stick to check the firmness/ dig/ sewer hole before you put your step. Mind it, don’t walk where water is not moving and don't allow children to play around flood waters
