It is very important to understand in the case of a breach of the levee, YOU WILL NEED TO GET TO THE TOP OF THE LEVEE AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. If you can’t readily get to the levee top, go up to the second story of your house (or if yours is a single story home, the second story of a nearby neighbor’s house). IT WILL BE IMPERATIVE FOR YOU TO GET TO THE HIGHEST POINT THAT YOU CAN ABOVE THE FLOODPLAIN. IT IS ALSO CRITICAL THAT YOU DO NOT DRIVE ON THE LEVEE IN ITS SATURATED CONDITION FOLLOWING ALL THE STORMS.
