National Flood Awareness Week is April 10 - 16
Did you know that 6 inches of flood water can cause thousands of dollars in damage? Twelve (12) inches of water is enough to make most small vehicles float away; 18 to 24 inches of rushing water can be enough to float and carry away a full size pickup truck or SUV.  Click the links below for helpful #FloodSafety tips that you can discuss with your family and learn what to do before, during, and after a flood. Talk with your family about creating a #FloodSafety plan. For tips and tools visit: Follow on and on Twitter @PrepareAthon
