PUBLIC INFORMATION STATEMENT
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE LINCOLN IL
910 AM CDT MON MAR 16 2015

The National Weather Service (NWS) has declared March 15 through
March 21 as Flood Safety Awareness Week. Each day during the
awareness week will feature information about a different flood
related topic.

Flood Safety: Nearly every day, flooding happens somewhere in the
United States or its territories. Flooding can occur in any of the
fifty states or U.S. territories at any time of the year. It causes
more damage in the United States than any other weather related
event. On average, floods cause eight billion dollars in damages and
eighty nine fatalities annually. More than half of these deaths are
the result of driving into flood waters. Being prepared and knowing
how to stay safe will help you and your loved ones survive a flood.
Stay safe during a flood by being prepared in advance...
