THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN NORTH PLATTE NEBRASKA HAS DECLARED
MARCH 16 THROUGH MARCH 20 AS FLOOD SAFETY AWARENESS WEEK. EACH DAY
OF THE WEEK WILL FEATURE INFORMATION ABOUT A DIFFERENT FLOOD RELATED
TOPIC.

TODAY/S 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
