Flood Warnings For Drivers
HUBER HEIGHTS -- These gates were put up on Taylorsville Road to keep drivers safe, and the Huber Heights Fire Department says it doesn't always work.
"They go around it, they go around and try to get through," said Blane Armbruster, owner of Central Collision Repair Body Shop, "It could be real dangerous when it's flooded."
Taylorsville Road in Huber Heights is known to flood when there's heavy rain-- or like today, rain mixed with several inches of melting snow-- is already making a mess on the road.
"Even at the two feet level the water can actually start to move and float the car away," said Lt. Jeff Gallagher, Huber Heights Fire Department.
That's exactly what happened to this couple back in December.
They ignored the road closed, and high water signs on Taylorsville Road, and ended up needing rescued by the Huber Heights Fire Department.
"Don't try and risk it and drive across those areas, you never know what you're going to get yourself into," said Lt. Gallagher.
The fire department has a rescue swimmer on standby during every shift.
In fact, this is video of training for the swimmers, just to make sure they're ready to go.
"The higher the water, the faster it's moving, the more dangerous it's going to be," said Lt. Gallagher, "We're trying to avoid putting people in the situation where they need rescued or evacuated, the easiest way to deal with it is the prevention aspect of it, and not getting into that situation."
You can keep yourself safe, and dry, by reading these signs and not going around them.
"Turn around, you know, got to go the long way around, it would be better safer," said Armbruster.
Recent legislation allows jurisdictions to fine up to 2-thousand dollars for ignoring road closure signs. But Huber Heights Fire says, they don't do that.
