KDOT Warns Against Flooding
Statewide (March 17, 2021) – Heavy rains have been forecasted for parts of Kansas. With this in mind, the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has cautioned residents to “turn around, don’t drown.” The agency noted that six inches of rainfall is more than enough to cause slips and falls, one foot is enough to cause cars to float, and two feet can carry away most motor vehicles.
Patterson Legal Group echoes KDOT’s advice. If the rain is coming down hard and you don’t have to drive or walk, please stay where you are and keep safe. Should you get injured in a car accident during a heavy storm, please contact us for immediate assistance. Source: KDOT
