Early Spring Flood Outlook Calls for Elevated Flood Threat

 

Prepare Now for Spring Flooding

  • In the home, be prepared to deal with spring by being sure you have a functioning sump pump and a back up.

  • Have enough food and water in your home to last at least 3 days if flood waters cause road access to be cut off.

  • Know your alternate routes if flooding causes roads to be closed.

  • Consider buying flood insurance. Flood insurance can take up to 30 days to go into effect, and just 1 inch of flooding can cause more than $25k in damage to your home. More information: https://www.floodsmart.gov/
