FEMA Urges Americans to Be Ready for Floods

This is the most common disaster in the United States, affecting the most people year after year.

FEMA is offering practical advice about flood preparations/awareness as it marks the March 16-22 National Flood Awareness Week. Videos posted on its website illustrate the damage some recent flooding inflicted and measures that can make structures more resistant to floods.

Having a plan for what to do in case of a flood involves thinking through questions such as:

  • What roads in my community tend to flood first? Will this impact my travel around town?
  • How will I stay in touch with family/friends if flooding knocks out cell phone service?
  • Where would I go if local officials tell me to evacuate the area due to flooding?
  • What's the risk of flooding for my area?

Flood preparedness resources and materials are available at Ready.gov.
