Spring typically brings warmer weather to Virginia.
At times, Prince William residents may also see heavy rainfall, which can led to flooded streets, and overflowing streams and rivers.
The county has released a few flood safety tips for its residents.
Flooding can occur when it has rained steadily for multiple days, according to a release.
Flash floods take place hours after it has begun raining. They can cause damage to buildings and bridges, uproot trees, and move large objects — including boulders.
If a flood happens, Prince William County Department of Fire and Rescue Chief Kevin McGee suggests that community members avoid underpasses, underground parking garages, and basements.
They should also monitor the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio and leave areas expected to flood.
County residents should not try to cross over streams or drive through roads that are flooded.
Anyone who gets to water that is above their ankles should stop and turn around.
