Florida flooding & the health risks imposed [#Debby]

This posting is not my own idea ~ I just read this on the local weather/news website and wanted to share it.

With the flooding from Tropical Storm Debby here in Florida, more people are using alternate means of transportation, as in human-powered: walking, biking etc. due to cars not being able to get down streets, over bridges etc.
Unknowingly however, flood waters can contain fecal matter, bacteria, viruses etc.

Please click THIS LINK to read the complete article and to know how to wash and disinfect yourself after being exposed to these risks. 

Be safe our there, Florida.
Know where your local shelters are. The Shelter available in Winter Haven, FL is: St. John's Methodist Church, 1800 Cypress Gardens Blvd. SE Winter Haven 33884

And if you live in Winter Haven/Auburndale, you are welcome at my house! (friendly dogs also welcome)
