turn around don't drown

Flooded low water crossings pose a serious threat to life in the Ozarks.  Hundreds if not thousands of low water crossings dot the landscape of the Ozarks and are routinely traveled by many.  Recent flood events have demonstrated the dangers of low water crossings with numerous water rescues. To locate and better understand flood prone areas, NWS Springfield hads developed the Flash Flood Risk Analysis Project.
