Flood Safety Awareness Week: March 17- 21, 2008

Ooooh, we almost missed it! Very timely given the flooding in the midwest.

Floods are one of the most common hazards in the United States. Flood effects can be local, impacting a neighborhood or community, or very large, affecting entire river basins and multiple states.

FEMA and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's National Weather Service encourages citizens to know their flood hazards. National Flood Safety Awareness Week is intended to highlight some of the many ways floods can occur, the hazards associated with floods, and what you can do to save life and property.
