Chicagoland Road Closure List from Floodwaters (Sample, not Complete) Wednesday May 1, 2019

Road closures have been reported throughout Chicagoland from a variety of sources and are listed below the floodwater tips directly below. Some areas have had more than 3 inches of rain.

FLOODWATER TIPS


Stay out of all flood waters; trying to navigate the fast-moving, debris-filled flood waters can lead to drowning or risky rescue situations.

Avoid skin contact with the flood water because it can be contaminated and cause severe infections.

Do not consume anything exposed to flood water, and keep flood water out of your eyes, nose and mouth.

Move to high ground if you find yourself in an area where flooding is occurring.

Do not attempt to drive on a flooded road, even if the water appears to be shallow because your car could be swept away with resulting drowning, or the car could be stalled with vehicle damage resulting.

Do not push your vehicle out of the water. If it is stuck, get out and find higher ground.

Do not park near a stream, river or place that could easily flood.

Create a readiness plan in case your home or business floods.
