ATLANTA, Ga. –  Flooding is one of the most common hazards in the United States, with 90 percent of all U.S. natural disasters involving some sort of flooding.

Water levels will rise before Michael makes landfall and heavy rains will certainly bring flooded roads. The Florida Department of Transportation is encouraging motorists who see flooded roads to turn around and find alternate routes, adding that flooded roads can hide washed out roads and only 6 inches of rushing water can easily push a car off the road.
