Drink more warm water or drinks to reduce shivering in the cold and to keep your throat and your body warm.

Avoid going out for unnecessary matters during flooding time for your safety. If you must go out, try checking and choosing the road that you are familiar with or have a low water level.

When you driving in the floods, maintain on 2000rph and keep pressing on the accelerator, not the brake. If possible, park your car on the head-up recline to avoid water flowing into the car engine.
