"No matter what make/model of vehicle you own, please don't drive through flooded sections of road.

"Be mindful of surface water and flooding when out on the roads today, and in the coming days. It's not worth the risk. Find an alternate route. If there is a road closure in place, don't ignore the barriers/signage."
