Flood Safety Tips

Call 911 if floodwater impacts your home and creates an emergency situation such as a fire.

  • Report a storm water issue or an emergency utility issue by calling 954.921.3046. This is the same number to call to report urgent utilities issues after hours, on weekends and holidays.
  • Report street-level flooding that makes roads impassable by calling 954.764.4357.
  • Motorists should not attempt to drive through flooded areas. Remember, "Turn Around, Don't Drown."
  • Use caution with electrical appliances, electrical cords and outlets if floodwaters have entered your home.   

Residents should not wade in standing flood water, which can contain contaminants. Following a heavy storm, sharp debris and other items from overturned garbage bins could be hidden in the water and cause injury. Standing water also may contain harmful bacteria that could cause infection. Children and pets should not be allowed to play in flood water.
