Flood Safety Before After Tips
Be Safe Considering These Before-After Flood Tips
When we talk about disasters, flooding is the most common hazard in the United States. Flood outcomes can be local, affecting a neighborhood or community, or widespread, hitting entire rivers basins and multiple states.
Not all floods are the same. Some of them occur slowly, sometimes over a span of days. But flash floods occur rapidly, sometimes in just a few minutes and without any visible signs of rain. Flash floods often have a dangerous wall of roaring water that carries muds, rocks, and other debris and can sweep away most thing in its path.
Be aware of flood hazards no matter where you live, but especially if you live in a low lying area, near a water reservoir. Every state is at risk from this hazard.
Thing To Considered Before a Flood Be alert.
- Observe your surroundings.
- Keep your self updated with NOAA Weather Radio, local televisions and radio stations or go to https://www.weather.gov/
- If you get an alert of a flash flood in your areas. Climb to a safe location, flash floods develop quickly. Do not wait until you see rising water.
- Fill some drinking water in clean containers.
- Keep some food items that require no refrigerator or cooking.

- Battery powered radio.
- Identify the place you can go for a safe shelter.
- Look for alternative routes for traveling that are not prone to flooding.

Things To considered After a Flood
