What to Do During a Roadside Emergency
Flash floods happen in the state of Texas and usually with little warning. Never drive into what may appear shallow water. Your car can become stranded. The flow of the current usually grows stronger and undetectable risking your life. Call 911 if the situation becomes life-threatening.
If your car becomes immobile, use common sense. Don't stay in the car. This is a danger zone. Move yourself away from the immobile vehicle and use your phone to contact your insurance towing department but if there is an imminent threat, do call 911.
