Don't let children play in flood water
There may be a lot of rain and floodwater over the next few days, along with bored kids (and adults!). Flood water can contain unseen dangers including snakes, waste, and sharp objects. Keep these tips in mind and share them with your children (from the Houston Health Dept.):
- Practice good hygiene, such as hand washing after any contact with floodwaters. Wash children's hands frequently, especially before meals.- Do not allow children to play in floodwater areas.- Do not eat any food that was in contact with floodwater.
