We have been talking a lot about Flooding and Flash Flooding happening around our area. Although we are expecting isolated showers this week, they are not expect to be wide spread or drop heavy amounts. But certainly the rain is not over. In fact we are still more than a month and a half away from the peak of hurricane season. So being prepared is key!
Floods are one of most common hazards in the United States, however not all floods are alike. Some floods develop slowly, while others such as a flash flood can develop in just a few minutes and without visible signs of rain. Additionally, floods can be local, impacting a neighborhood or community, or very large, affecting entire river basins and multiple states.
