During a flood, the water level can rise very quickly. Every year, several shoreline residents and those nearby are surprised by the sudden flood without having taken the necessary precautions.
- Anticipate having a place, with relatives or friends, where you can take refuge quickly.
- Make arrangements for your pets.
- Don’t wait until the river level has risen to a critical point or until roads are impassible to leave your residence.
- If there are imminent flood risks, completely cut the electrical service to your home. If you cannot do this yourself, contact Hydro-Québec.
