Indianapolis, IN – During Indiana’s Severe Weather Preparedness Week, the US National Weather Service in Chicago is drawing attention to the potential risks posed by floodwaters. 

The service stresses that floodwaters may contain harmful substances such as dangerous chemicals, sewage, and debris, which can cause illness or injury. Officials are urging the public to avoid entering floodwaters and to be aware of the hidden hazards they carry. As part of the preparedness efforts, authorities are promoting educational resources to help residents understand the impacts of pollution on watersheds and the importance of water management. 

By focusing on proactive measures, such as staying informed through weather.gov and respecting safety advisories, Hoosiers can better protect themselves and their communities from the unpredictable nature of severe weather and its consequences.
