Flash floods are one of the most serious natural threats in our area. Even though we live in a semi-arid environment, short-lived, powerful storms can and do happen. Often small streams can become rushing torrents for a brief period of time. Anyone caught in a streambed or ditch during such a flash flood has little chance of survival. That's why it's so important to learn more about flash floods!
