In case you are caught up in floods, these are the things to do:

1. Don’t remove your shoes to wade in the water, let them soak, you will find another pair to change to. The shoe is supposed to protect you from what you can’t see under that water. If you can get an access to waterproof boots the better.

2. Keep enough safe drinking water. Chances are, water from the tap will be contaminated. Treat it before consumption – boiling is the most accessible treatment option.

3. Cholera and typhoid cases might start to rise. Make sure you have something like ORS in the house so that in case of diarrhea you can replenish electrolytes before you get to the hospital.

4. Mosquito borne diseases might spike. Sleep under nets. Especially now that we have Plasmodium stephensi.

5.Always carry an umbrella

6.Keep away from electricity and loose electric lines

7.Move to high places in case your area is flooded.
