Texas Flood Awareness Week May 20-24, 2024

“Don’t Be a Clown! – Turn Around. Don’t Drown!”

Welcome to flood awareness week! TFMA is dedicated to educating our communities about the importance of flood awareness and safety. To some, flooding is a rare occurrence caused by heavy rainfall, but we all know, that is not always the case.

The Turn Around Don’t Drown (TADD) program, a trademark of the National Weather Service, raises awareness about the dangers of flooding. Contrary to popular belief, TADD is not just for major floods. Even in moderate rainfall, it’s essential to be vigilant and cautious while traveling. Despite Texas ranking near the top in flood damage and flood-related deaths annually, we can prevent these situations from occurring. When traveling remember to take priority in your and others’ safety. We’ve heard of many instances in our communities of people crossing barricades and going through flooded roads thinking “it won’t happen to them.

The force of water does not clown around. We shouldn’t either!
