Weather Ready Nation

U.S. Flood Control is proud to be an embassador of the Weather Ready Nation.

The Weather-Ready Nation Ambassador™ initiative is the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) effort to formally recognize NOAA partners who are improving the nation’s readiness, responsiveness, and overall resilience against extreme weather, water, and climate events. As a WRN Ambassador, partners commit to working with NOAA and other Ambassadors to strengthen national resilience against extreme weather. In effect, the WRN Ambassador initiative helps unify the efforts across government, non-profits, academia, and private industry toward making the nation more ready, responsive, and resilient against extreme environmental hazards. Weather-Ready Nation (WRN) is a strategic outcome where society’s response should be equal to the risk from all extreme weather, water, and climate hazards.

Walmart building & Tiger Dam

The tubes are filled with water that will protect the store from flood waters outside.

This specific store was built upon 100-year flood numbers because of the flood plain around it. So far their own retaining wall has worked. The water is still expected to rise a few more inches to crest at 41 FT.
