We encourage residents of this area to take the following steps:
Consider purchasing flood insurance for both the structure and the contents. You do not need to be in a floodplain, and renters can purchase policies too. Rates will be lower now before the floodplain information is submitted to FEMA. Contact your insurance agent.
Have an emergency plan. Please keep in mind that you may be safer staying at your home than trying to escape a flood in your vehicle. Most fatalities during floods happen in vehicles. There are several streets in this neighborhood that may be impassible with enough rain.
