Natural Gas Safety Tips for Flooding: If you believe your home or business may become flooded to the point where water could extinguish pilot lights, you can turn off the appliance at the supply valve, typically located within 6 feet of the appliance.  Valves usually turn in one direction and require a one-quarter of a turn to fully close.  If any of your appliances, or appliance valves, becomes submerged in water, do not try to relight your pilot.  Instead, contact a qualified contractor to inspect before using.
