Don't risk drowning. Stay out of moving water and wait patiently for it to subside--or turn around and find another route.
While camping next to a stream in a mountain environment might look inviting, during the rainy season or when there are rain clouds in the vicinity, walk up hill to higher ground and camp there.
If you are evacuated from your home for a major flood, please, heed the evacuation order and don't return until the official all-clear has come.
Be safe. Be prepared.
