  • Flash Flood Safety Info

    A flash flood is a serious weather event for forest visitors because rising flood water is extremely dangerous—a sudden surge can claim victims in less than one minute.

     Any intense, heavy rain that falls in a short amount of time can create flash flood conditions in a low-lying area, according to the National Weather Service, and it can happen at a moment’s notice any time of the year.

    Your Safety is Your Responsibility:

    • Remember, city sirens don’t exist in  nature.
    • Monitor weather forecasts, prior to  visiting  and during your  visit  to remote areas.
    • Climb to higher ground, don’t get into vehicles.
