What is the number one cause of death from drowning in floods?

Driving into a flooded section of roadway...and that usually happens when drivers ignore 'road closed' signs. Cars can be swept away with just 18" of water (depth)...while pedestrians can be knocked off their feet when water is just 6" deep. The solution is simple. Stay out of flooded sections of roadways. Remember the slogan 'turn around-don't drown!'
