Video :: Tennessee Severe Weather Awareness Week - Turn Around, Don't Drown

Tuesday, February 22, 2011 | 09:14am

TRANSCRIPT:  I'm Chris Johnson with Tennessee Emergency Management Agency.

Twenty-four people lost their lives during the May 2010 floods in Tennessee.

Many of those who perished took the unnecessary risk of venturing into flood waters, either on foot or in their cars.

Preparedness is an individual responsibility.

I'm an Emergency Manager and if you're facing flood water, I'm asking you to turn around and don't drown.
