Know the Risks

Just because an area is outside of a flood zone and has never flooded before, does not mean it never will. Consider the following flood related risks:

  • Sewer backup and poor drainage
  • Storm surges, notably at high tide
  • Poorly maintained levees and dams
  • Changing topography which can alter drainage paths
  • Extreme weather producing heavier rainfalls

Being aware of flood risks and taking the proper measures can help mitigate the impact of a flood event.
