Flooding Preparations in Case of Another Flooding

Hurricane Florence has taken on quite a toll of flooding in a lot of places. One thing we could do to prepare for emergencies is to plan a evacuation plan and make several accessible kits we could use at a time in need.

Many people know there’s a flash flood watch and a flash flood warning. It is important to know the difference between those two. If you hear there is a flood watch, then that means you have to keep an eye out for any flooding; that it is possible. A flood warning means there will be flooding soon or there is already flooding and you need to take precautions QUICKLY.

People can find easy ways to look for information or get help. You can listen to your local radio station or the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric) radio for any updates or preparations. There are also websites such as American Red Cross, TV stations about the weather you can look into, and some apps that can send alerts through the phone. If you need help, only if it’s urgent, then calling Red Cross or 911 would be the best option in case you’re stuck or in an emergency situation.

What should we do to prepare beforehand if we come across a flash flood warning? Make sure you have an emergency kit with you; always double check to see if you’re missing anything. Make another additional kit with supplies you think you might need; the only difference with this additional kit is you might run out or lose/damage supplies in your original kit. A few suggestions would be batteries, a flashlight, some canned food, and blankets. Store extra materials in your own car, too.

Always think ahead. If you have kids or pets, you would want to take some food and toys along with your kit to provide for them in case they go hungry or bored. Always check to make sure your car has gas. Different areas has different spots for higher ground or shelter to go to for flooding; make sure you know a place you can evacuate to so you are not rushing ahead and running out of time (and gas).

If you are most likely to lose things or have anything damaged, take pictures of everything of your property. Later on, if it is needed, insurance can help cover the costs and the loss of your items.

Never drive through water. You shouldn’t walk or swim in water either. Water is powerful enough to move a car or even a big truck even if it is only three feet or less. Water is strong enough to break the pavement or crack it. Avoid any contact with water; don’t drink it or use it because most chances it will be contaminated.

Keep an eye out. Be prepared. Stay safe!
