Recommendations to the population
In rainy situations, the Emergency 112 Andalusia service offers a series of recommendations and advice to the population to try to reduce the risks associated with rainfall. Thus, citizens are advised to remain calm and stay tuned for directions of the Aemet, Civil Protection, the authorities or agencies involved, transmitted through their troops or the media and official accounts on social networks, such as 112 Andalusia.
It is recommended to remove from the outside of the houses those furniture and objects that can be carried by water to avoid accidents. It is also advisable not to park vehicles or camp in dry riverbeds, or on the banks of rivers, to avoid being surprised by a sudden flood or flood. Motorists should exercise extreme caution and respect, as always, the rules of the road and indications on the information panels of the General direction of traffic, as well as never cross flooded places by car. In addition, if they come across a small pool of water, it must be crossed at a low speed and moving very slowly so that the water does not splash the motor and can stop it.
It is not necessary, even if its route is perfectly known, to move the vehicle along a flooded road or crossing a bridge or underpass with water since the force of the current could drag the vehicle. Likewise, traveling at night should be avoided, since it is during these hours that dangers are more difficult to detect.
No need to seek shelter under treesAbove all, if they are lonely, or even on hills, mountain tops or tall trees, and yes, look for low areas. Small buildings, barns and sheds as well as tents and convertibles should also be avoided.
