6 tips to stay safe in heavy rain

Heavy rains are the cause of many challenges and problems, from pooling water and overflowing rivers to evacuations and power outages. These weather conditions can result in vehicle congestion, road closures, and damaged infrastructure, disrupting traffic and causing chaos.

With the ever-increasing risk of heavy rain, preparing for and responding to it becomes essential. In this context, here are six practical tips to stay safe during periods of heavy rain:

  • Maintain personal safety during heavy rain

Wear protective clothing to reduce the effects of extreme weather and seek indoor shelter to avoid exposure to the elements.

  • Avoid high-risk places

Stay away from windows and doors during heavy rain and strong winds to avoid potential hazards and avoid places such as road tunnels, drainage ditches and low-lying areas where water may collect, where it can become submerged or flood unexpectedly.

  • Caution while driving

Avoid driving during heavy rain due to poor visibility, and if necessary, stop the car and wait until the rain slows down to avoid problems.

  • Avoid flooded roads

Do not attempt to drive through flooded roads, as the water may be deep and contain multiple hazards such as debris, sharp objects, and electrical hazards.

  • Avoid electrical areas

Stay away from power lines and electrical wires to reduce the risk of electric shock.

  • Follow weather reports

Stay informed of weather updates and flood warnings to take action to stay safe.
