How to Endure a Flood

Generally, properties subject to floods are already in a flood plain and carry separate flood insurance. However, any property is subject to flooding given enough water in an area. Heavy thunderstorms, drought followed by water or the melting of winter snow can produce a fast or slow-rising flood. Flash floods are generally sudden and without warning, with walls of water up to 10-20 feet. Cars can be swept away. Be prepared.
