National Flood Safety Awareness Week Begins

March 16th, 2009 · No Comments

It’s National Flood Safety Awareness Week, and the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration’s National Weather Service and FEMA are warning the public, particularly those in the Midwest, to prepare for the possibility of spring flooding. According to their Awareness Week website:

Most Americans ignore the risks of flooding, assuming they aren’t in a flood zone. The reality is, floods are America’s #1 natural disaster and can happen anytime, anywhere. In fact, 90% of all natural disasters in the U.S. involve flooding. Educate yourself on the risks and impacts of flooding during National Flood Awareness Week so you can protect your family and your property.
