northern Bedford counties... the city of Buena Vista and the city of

Most flood deaths occur in automobiles. Never drive your vehicle into

deeper than they appear. Just one foot of flowing water is powerful
enough to sweep vehicles off the Road. When encountering flooded
roads make the smart choice... turn around... dont drown.

Service by calling toll free at 1... 8 6 6... 2 1 5... 4 3 2 4. Reports
