Before a Flood
Preparing for a Flood
To prepare for a flood, you should:
  • Avoid building in a flood-prone area unless you elevate and reinforce your home
  • Elevate the furnace, water heater, and electric panel if susceptible to flooding
  • Install check valves in sewer traps to prevent floodwater from backing up into the drains of your home
  • Contact community officials to find out if they are planning to construct barriers (levees, beams, floodwalls) to stop floodwater from entering the homes in your area

To learn more about what you can do to protect your home, we encourage you to visit the FEMA website.
