Hi dear, Every reaction is mostly based on the surrounding situations only. Here in this case, it is so particular that how fast the water is running, is there any hill side near by, is it a forest area around etc. As an immediate reaction, if around and possible, climb up on the trees. If we cannot run around and water is almost reached up, there is no option. We cannot take adequate preparations in such times. We cannot hide on houses or such places. If there is some huge rock or something like, climb upon it. or if possible, run towards opposite direction where water may not come. Also, if you got into water, wave on it, if the water is not jump into some deep places. But the authorities should infor the people prior to open the shutters of the dam so as the nearby people can move to a secure place. There may be options, but most approprite will depend on the situations. Regards, Thank-s
