If it's down, it's a danger. Stay back at least 10 metres and dial 911.

The safest distance is to stay, or shuffle, at least 10 metres away. This is the equivalent of about 40 people standing in line, 3 cars, or a city bus.

Remember to shuffle heel to toe with your shoes always touching. This will take approximately 60 seconds.
