Severe Flooding Safety Tips and Local Event Cancellations

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The Springfield-Greene County Park Board is already announcing some cancellations because of tomorrow's predicted bad weather.

Bark in the Park and Sparc Soccer are postponed.

Right now, The American Heart Association's Heart Walk is still on at Hammons Field.

Make sure to check your event's website before heading out.

Public safety leaders want to remind people of these important flood tips:

            *Remember more people die from flooding than any other weather-related event.

            *More than half of those killed by floods are in vehicles and drive into the floodwaters.

            *Flash flooding is particularly dangerous at night when you can't see the water.

            *Never travel into a low water crossing because less than a foot of water can push a vehicle.
