HAZARD HELP SHEET — FLOOD AWARENESS
Did you know that flooding is the nation’s most common and most costly natural disaster? Flooding can happen in every city, state/province and territory.
However, all floods are not alike. Some can develop slowly during an extended period of rain, or in a warming trend following heavy snow. Others, such as flash floods, can occur quickly, even without any visible signs of rain. It’s important to be prepared for flooding no matter where you live, particularly if you are in a low-lying area, near water, or downstream from a dam. Even a very small stream or dry creek bed can overflow and create flooding.
Be safe! Be prepared!
