Whether a byproduct of excessive rainfall, a dam or levee failure, or a sudden release of water held by an ice jam, floods can pack enormous destructive force. Rising flood waters can reach heights 30 feet or more and fast moving flood waters can readily roll boulders, tear out trees, destroy buildings and bridges, and scour out new channels. Furthermore, flash flood-producing rains trigger catastrophic mud slides. You will not always have a warning that these deadly, sudden floods are coming. Most flood deaths are due to flash floods. Nevertheless, lives can be saved and property damage mitigated with proper flood preparedness. These resources focus on flood awareness and flood preparedness issues.
