Torrential rainfall is also occurring with these storms, and may
cause localized flooding. Do not drive your vehicle through flooded

Lightning can strike 10 miles away from a thunderstorm. Seek a safe

flooded roads. Find alternate routes. It takes only a few inches of
swiftly flowing water to carry vehicles away.
