Awareness lessens exposure to danger
Floods kill more people each year than any other weather phenomenon.
About 60 percent of all flood deaths result from people trying to cross flooded roads in vehicles when moving water sweeps them away.
Mississippi Emergency Management Agency and the Federal Emergency Management Agency remind residents about the dangers of floods.
MEMA Director Mike Womack encourages residents to monitor local weather warnings by listening to local media and NOAA Weather Radio, which issues alert signals if a watch or warning is issued.
