This presentation will examine flood deaths around the Houston area since 1995, categorizing those which were directly vehicle related versus those in homes or structures. Using this Houston specific data, we will also examine if the current NWS message of ‘turn around, don't drown’ is the best message for flash flood safety as it relates to the nation’s fourth largest city. Should we explore other messaging, such as ‘stay safe, stay home’ given Houston flooding rarely drowns people at home or work? Although many thousands of homes and business were flooded in each of the more recent events, only one drowning was related to a home when a mobile home was washed away in rural Washington county from the May 26, 2016 flooding. Lastly, we will also discuss whether not we can we do more to educate how to escape a sinking car. Should we provide messaging beyond 'turn around, don't drown' to help anyone who finds themselves trapped in a sinking car, or one with rapidly rising water around them?
