It’s a new year. Do you need a new flood protection plan?
There are many causes of flooding. Rain fall of a prolonged duration, high winds over water, dam failure, the breakdown of retention ponds and levees, and high snow melt. Flooding can also be forwarded by natural causes like wildfires that can reduce or even devastate vegetation such as low shrubs and indigenous grasses that would normally absorb rainfall.
Because of any of these conditions floods may occur on streams and rivers overflowing their banks into areas known as flood plains.
Even without rainfall the shorelines of lakes and bays can flood due to high winds that blow water into low shorelines.
All coastal areas are vulnerable to high tides and are even more susceptible to high wind, hurricane and storm surges.
Any of these scenarios can affect your home or commercial properties.
