Current Flood Information

Be Prepared

Emergency management encourages residents to monitor weather reports and remain cautious. In addition:

  • Heed all local warnings. Listen to news and directions from their local and state officials. If told to evacuate, do so.
  • Have a family disaster plan. Identify evacuation routes and a site away from the disaster area where family members can meet.
  • Even if you haven't been affected by past flooding, you still need to be prepared.
  • Disaster officials suggest having "go kits," that include a battery-powered radio, nonperishable food, bottled water, a flashlight with extra batteries and essential prescription medicine.
