- State Health Department Advises New Yorkers to Take Precautions Against the Impacts of Flooding
Think safety first. It is important to remain alert to the hazards - some obvious, some hidden - that may be associated with storm-damaged areas. If you are returning home to a flood-impacted area, it is vital that you use caution and follow the guidance that we and emergency management experts across the nation recommend to keep you and your family safe and healthy.
Flooding is a terrible ordeal for many New Yorkers and the last thing we want is for anyone else to suffer illness or injury, so if you live in a flooded area, take special care to protect your health and safety. Think about your neighbors, too. If you know of someone with special needs, please check on them, if you can, in case they might need assistance.
