Flood Safety Awareness Week

News

Every year, more deaths occur due to flooding than from any other severe weather related hazard. The main reason is people underestimate the force and power of water. More than half of all flood related deaths result from vehicles being swept downstream.

NOAA and the National Weather Service want you to know that flooding is a coast to coast threat across the United States and its territories during all months of the year. Flood Safety Awareness Week is intended to highlight some of the many ways floods can occur, the hazards associated with floods, and what you can do to save life and property.
