NOAA's Spring Flood Outlook

This is NOAA's outlook for widespread flooding from now through the end of May. It does not include thunderstorm-related flooding due to heavy rain. They are calling the flood potential for this spring, "unprecedented." Below is an explanation of the descriptive words.

As I mentioned when I first posted about this threat, this information does not do anyone any good if it is viewed as merely interesting. Especially if you are in a "major" risk risk area, begin making preliminary precautions now: 

  • How would you contact family and friends?
  • How would you and they evacuate?
  • Do you have a list of what you would take with you if you need to evacuate quickly? Things like financial records and precious family albums and records?
  • Do you have a way of receiving flash flood and flood warnings quickly?
  • Does your business have an alternative location or does it have a way of getting vital records and equipment out of danger?
  • Keep your car full of fuel. Keep your computers and phones fully charged. 
I'll update on this threat from time to time.
