Floods are the most common and widespread of all natural disasters - apart from fires. Many communities in Namibia experience some kind of flooding during our rainy season. Floods can be slow, or fast rising, but generally develop over a period of days. What are Flashfloods? Flashfloods usually result from intense storms, dropping large amounts of rain within a brief period of time. Flashfloods appear with little or no warning and can reach full peak in only a few minutes. Communities particularly at risk are those located in low-lying areas, near water or downstream from a dam. Before the Rain Season Make sure all drainage systems (rivers, streams, channels and openings in boundary walls) in your area are clean of debris and garden refuseassuch things block the drainage systems and cause flooding. If the unclean systems are on municipal ground, report it to the Roads & Stormwater Division (290 2333/2443). You must also report illegal dumping to the City Police (302 302). Before a Flood Contact our Roads & Stormwater Division to find out if you live in a flood-prone area and ask if your property is above or below the flood line and learn about the history of flooding in your areaIf you live in a frequently flooded area, consider stockpiling emergency building materials, which could include plywood, plastic sheeting, shovels, sandbags, etc. During a Flood If indoors: Turn on battery-operated radio or television to get the latest emergency information. PUBLIC NOTICE Flood Preparedness Get your pre-assembled emergency supplies. If told to leave, do so immediately. If outdoors: Climb to high ground and stay there. Avoid walking through any floodwaters. If moving swiftly, even water 12 cm deep can sweep you off your feet. If in a Car: If you come to a flood area, turn around and go another way. Don’t be inquisitive, it hampers emergency workers to do their work. If your car stalls, abandon it immediately and climb to higher ground. Many deaths have resul ted from attempts to move stalled vehicles. Obey road traffic signs, roadblocks and instructions from law enforcement officers, at all times. Don’t take risks! When entering buildings, use extreme caution Wear strong shoes and use battery-powered flash lights when examining buildings. Examine walls, floors, doors and windows to make sure that the building is not in danger of collapsing. Watch out for animals, especially poisonous snakes, which may have come into your house with the flood waters, use a stick to check through debris. Watch for loose plaster or ceilings that could fall. Take pictures of the damage - both to the house and its contents if your house is insured for claims. Look for fire hazards Broken or leaking gas lines (if used). Flooded electrical circuits.

Flammable or explosive materials coming from upstream. Discard food that has come into contact with flood waters. Service septic tanks or sewage systems as soon as possible - as damaged systems are health hazards. Inspecting utilities in a damaged home Check for gas leaks (where used) - if you smell gas or hear a blowing or hissing noise, open a window and quickly leave the building. Turn off the gas at the main valve. Look for electrical systems damage - if you see sparks or broken or frayed wires, or if you smell hot insulation, switch off the electricity at the main switch. If you have to step into water to get to the main switch, contact an electrician for advice. Check for sewage and water lines damage - if you suspect sewage lines are damaged, avoid using the toilets and call a plumber.
