Misleading Headline

The strictly enforced restrictions are in place to keep residents away from floodwaters that could be hazardous due to electrical and structural concerns in the weakened homes, as well as contamination.
If the current carries you away, you may die.

But a headline pandering to the 'scaremongering of the radical environmentalist' is misleading.
Yes, floodwaters are dirty and dangerous - and the authorities need to protect people - but the hazards of the toxic items in the water, pale in comparison to the danger of being swept away, or being caught in a building collapse, or being fried by a live electrical wire in the water.

Soap is the solution to the toxic mix in the water.
