Ready, a national public service campaign, advises citizens do the following in the midst of flooding:
  • Do not walk, swim, or drive through flood waters
  • Stay away from bridges over fast-moving water
  • Evacuate if told to do so, otherwise move to higher ground or a higher floor
  • Gather supplies in case you need to evacuate immediately or if services are cut off
  • Purchase or renew a flood insurance policy
Meanwhile, those who want to keep neighborhood storm drains clear of debris can "Adopt a Drain" in St. Paul and Minneapolis.
