N.C. News Station Reminds Viewers “Turn Around, Don’t Drown”

Greensboro, N.C. – A local news station in Greensboro, North Carolina, is reminding its viewers to think twice before traveling through flood ravaged areas. WFMY News 2 reporter Jason Silver’s and viewers got a front row seat to what can happen when making the treacherous drive through flooded areas. During a live shot Silver’s watches in amazement as motorists attempt to power through dangerous areas. He said, “it’s incredible” to see drivers disregard the road closure signage and put their lives and livelihoods at unnecessary risk at 12:15 a.m.

The news station is reminding viewers to “Turn Around, Don’t Drown,” and that it only takes as little as 12 inches of accumulated water to carry away a small car. Half of all flood related drownings are due to motorists attempting to drive through flooded roadways. The news station shared more raw footage of travelers below.
