Officials are warning residents to brace for a ‘rare and dangerous’ storm.
By News Desk
If you must drive in the rain, the CHP advises the following:
- If you find your car “hydroplaning” or sliding on excess water on the road do not apply the brakes immediately. Instead, take your foot off the accelerator and let your tires find traction on the pavement.
- Give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination safely.
- Turn on your headlights for better visibility and for others on the road to see you.
- Try to stay in the middle lanes, as the outside lanes tend to gather water.
- Do not attempt to cross flooded roadways. Water depth can fool you.
- Do not attempt to cross blocked roads. Cones and signs are placed by authorities for a reason.
