Flash flooding is the highlighted event as Severe Weather Awareness Week kicks off Monday. Marion County Emergency Management Coordinator Jeff Anderson says you should never test standing water in roads with your car. You can never tell how strong that water is that is covering the road. It’s very easy for your vehicle to be picked up and washed away. Anderson says you should instead turn around and find a different way to your destination.
