Fall & Flood Weather

Kids are back in school and the weather is starting to change from summer heat to the cooler season of fall. Are you prepared for fall weather hazards? Does your family have a plan?

  1. Make a Family Communication Plan so everyone knows where to go and how to stay in touch.
  2. Get a NOAA Weather Radio.
  3. Prepare for winter storms by stocking at least three days of non-perishable food and water.
  4. Learn how to be a Force of Nature!

With Hurricane Florence and other heavy rain storms, the potential for flooding is very real. Heavy rainfall always brings a danger of flash flooding, but sometimes even light/moderate rainfall can trigger dangerous floods. Dry stream beds can become raging torrents in minutes with no rain in sight! Stay safe from floodwaters and learn more at https://www.weather.gov/media/wrn/floods_booklet.pdf#page=3

Stay safe and enjoy the fall!
