High flows are not uncommon this time of year...but they still pose a
serious threat to persons in or near the water. Each year...high
flows result in mishaps that are sometimes fatal.

Stay away from the banks of rivers and streams. During high water...
saturated banks can easily break off and fall into potentially
deadly...fast flowing water.
