Officials are advising people to get on the roof of their home to escape extreme flooding inside.
Those trying to escape the floodwater in their homes are instructed not to stay in the attic, because you could become trapped.
If your home becomes dangerous due to flooding, take your phone and supplies and move to the highest floor with windows. If that becomes dangerous, head to the roof and call 911.
Another tip is not to try to drive away from the flooding. Do not attempt to travel in flooded areas.
This bears repeating. When escaping flood waters in your home DO NOT get trapped in your attic. Get on the roof and call 911. pic.twitter.com/XsUeuFOxrb
