In the event of flooding:

  • Do not walk, ride, bike, swim, or drive through flood waters. Turn Around. Don’t Drown!
  • Avoid flooded roads, paths, and sidewalks. These areas could be damaged under the floodwaters.
  • Remember, just six inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
  • Be especially cautious at night when it is harder to recognize flooding dangers.
  • Notify UF Police Department at (352) 392-1111 of flooding conditions on campus.
