SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – It is Severe Weather Awareness Week here in Missouri. Each day will focus on a different topic to help you prepare for the upcoming season.

  • During a flood: get to higher ground, obey any evactuation orders, avoid flood waters, and stay informed
  • After a flood: still avoid flood waters, avoid disaster areas, heed road closures, and wait for the all clear

We asked around the newsroom some flood questions, watch the video to see how they did.
