Recently, Guangdong is under the attack of heavy rainstorms. These rainstorms can easily cause disasters such as land flooding and urban waterlogging. Be sure to keep these tips for protecting yourself in stormy weather!

What to do when the house is flooded due to low ground?

Turn off the power to prevent electric shocks.

Move electrical sockets, switches, etc. to a safe place more than 1 meter above the ground.

If you live in a low-lying yard, bungalow, or basement, you are suggested to build fences, place water barriers at doorways, and deploy small pumps to reinforce low-lying houses.

What to do if I encounter flash floods?

If you are near a river, you should follow the predetermined route to the hillside, high ground, etc., and do not stay by the river.

If you are surrounded by floodwaters, use boats, wooden rafts, door panels, wooden beds, etc. to move on the water as much as possible.

If you are in the mountains, please do not cross the river, and do not stay on loose mountain land to prevent being washed away by flash floods.

Please be alert to abnormal sounds such as landslides and roaring floods coming from a distance. When you encounter mudslides and landslides, you should immediately run to the high places on both sides of the ditch bank.

A safe disaster shelter site should be selected in a section with gentle slopes, complete and stable ground soil and rock, and no scouring by running water.

How to escape from being trapped in a car while driving?

When the water level has reached the window but not higher than the window, the door cannot be opened, and you can escape from the sunroof or side window.

When the water level is at one-third of the door, the door is easy to open, and you can directly open the door to escape.

Open the central lock immediately after the vehicle falls into the water to prevent malfunction. If you can open the door, please open the door quickly to escape.

When the vehicle sinks into the water, the front of the vehicle will first reach the bottom of the water, and the air will accumulate in the rear of the vehicle. Please open the door or smash the window as much as possible to escape.

What are the self-rescue equipment items for rainstorm weather?

Please prepare food, water, flashlight, first aid medicine and other emergency items as much as possible when you go out in rainy weather. Residents who live in areas prone to flash floods and flood disasters should always prepare radio equipment, such as radios, so that you can receive external information as early as possible.

What if rescue cannot be obtained in time?

Carry mobile communication devices with you as much as possible and send out distress messages in time.

Pay attention to rescue platform information, and rescue organizations. When the rescue team cannot reach the rescue site in time, the rescue information and location can be sent in time through network rescue channels opened by the government, schools and other institutions.
