HIDALGO COUNTY HERALD FRIDAY 1 AUGUST 20 r 2010 5 Potential for flash floods and flooding exists during heavy rainshowers! Submitted by GILA NATIONAL FORESTSilver City Over the weekend, the Gila National Forest has been receiv- ing widespread, extended rainshowers. With the abundance of rain, forest Visitors are strongly recommended to keep informed of current weather conditions as- sociated with the potential for flash floods and flooding! Flooding is the nation's most common natural disaster and it can happen anywhere! However, all floods are not alike. So/he can develop slowly during an ex- tended period of rain, or in a warming trend following a heavy snow. Others, such as flash floods, can occur quickly, even without any visible signs of rain. It's im- portant to be prepared for flood- ing, especially if you are in a low- lying area, near water, or down- stream from a dam. Even a very small stream or arroyo (dry creek bed) can overflow and create flooding! National Weather Ser- vice website - "Turn Around Don't Drown: http:// When heavy rainshowers are occurring: If camping, place the camp- site on higher ground and avoid camping in drainage areas such as rivers, creeks, or arroyos and especially in narrow canyons as flash floods can quickly develop! During these downpours, extreme caution should be exercised when crossing any river, creek, or ar- royo ! Know the weather forecast and plan accordingly. Know the weather patterns of the area! In mountainous ar- eas, thunderstorms typically de- velop in the early afternoon, so plan to hike early in the day and be down the mountain by noon. Be informed. Familiarize yourself with these terms to help identify a flood hazard: o Flood Watch: Flooding'is possible. o FlaAh Flood Watch: Flash flooding is possible.' Be prepared to move to higher ground. o Flood Warning: Flooding is occurring or will occur soon. If advised to evacuate, do so imme- diately. o Flash Flood Warning: A flash flood is occurring; seek higher ground on foot immedi- ately. Current information on For- est conditions may be obtained by contacting the Forest Supervisor's Office, (575) 388- 8201, in Silver City or any of the six Ranger District Offices. Of- fice hours are Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p,m. Forest website: http:// fs.usda,gov/gi!a Twitter: GilaForest PAO Report reveals NM as national leader in protecting children in disasters Submitted by SAVETHECHILDREN.ORG Almost five years after Hur- ricane Katrina, a new report r e- veals that New Mexico meets all four basic criteria for protecting children in disasters identified by Save the Children. Ninety per- cent of U.S. children live in an area at risk of natural disaster and terrorists can strike anywhere. Unlike New Mexico, 38 states and the District of Columbia did not meet all four basic standards. The report is the second di- saster preparedness report re- leased by Save the Children's U.S. Programs. New Mexico im- proved greatly since the release of the 2009 report, when it only met one. criterion. Save the Chil- dren worked with the New Mexico Children, Youth, and BYA offers cure for boredom Nothing to do? Come to the BYA office we are open from 4pm-8pm Tues- das'sF,ridays ,.1 pm-4pm on Saturdays. Come hang out and learn some interesting facts, do crafts, and help with event plan- ning. We are located at 7th and Pyramid. If you have any ques- tions feel to give us a call at 542- 3908. Families Department to help New Mexico adopt policies that would help it meet the report's criteria New Mexico is now one of only 12 states to meet all four stan- dards. Five years ago, Hurricane Katrina dempnstrated what can happen when children are not accounted for in disaster plan- ning: 5,192 children were re- ported missing after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, and the last child was. not found until six months later. About 50,000 Louisi- ana and Mississippi children missed school in the 2005-2006 school year and approximately 15,000 did not attend in the 2006- 2007 school year. More than a third of Louisiana children experienced clinically-diagnosed depression, anxiety, or another behavior dis- order after the storm. "Five years after Hurricane Katrina, it is unacceptable for states to ignore these low-cost and common-sense safeguards for kids," said Mark Shriver, Save the Chi!dren U.S. Programs: se- nior Vice President. "New Mexico is a national leader in protecting the most vulnerable New Mexi- cans in the most vulnerable set- tings. I hope other states will fol- low' New Mexico's example." New Mexico is one of five states that meet Save the Children's criteria for the first time. All five states worked with Save the Children's U.S. Programs to meet the standards and, in many cases, adopted the exact' same language as outlined in the 2009 report. Commissioned by Save the Children and conducted .by Brown Buckley Tucker, the report reviewed four key standards iden- tified by Save the Children, in- cluding plans for evacuation, re- unification with families and evacuation for special needs kids at child care facilities, as well as evacuation ,plans at schools. Save the Children urges the adoption of all four standards by states as well as federal passage of the Child Safety, Care, and Education Continuity. Act of 2010 (H.R. 5240/S. 2898), which would require states to adhere to many of the same standards.. Congresswoman Corrine Brown (D-FL) is the sponsor of the House legislation, and Senators Mary Eandrieu (D-LA) and Lamar Alexander (R-TN). are,the.spon- sors of the Senate measure.
