State Health Services Issues Health Warning
The Texas Department of State Health Services is issuing health related precautions for people affected by flood waters.
They are advising to wear shoes in flooded areas to reduce the chances of punctures or cuts from nails and other sharp objects. Snakes, bats and other wildlife could seek shelter in trees, homes and vehicles and if you do get bitten to seek immediate medical treatment. Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes so drain any excess water from buckets, tires and flower pots and don't allow children to play near storm drains.
