Understanding Flood Risks

In order to prepare for flooding it’s important to understand different types of flood risks, especially if your location is prone to flooding. Here are some key things to consider to understand flood risks:

Geographical Location: The risk of flooding is often linked to your location and whether you are in a high or low flood risk area. Homes that are near rivers or floodplains may be at a higher flood risk.

Weather and Climate: Depending on your location, some areas are more prone to torrential weather conditions or hurricanes. These extreme weather conditions can make flooding a more common occurrence.

Topography: The landscape of an area can influence the risk of flooding, such as areas with inadequate drainage systems. This can increase the risk of flooding.

Human Activities: There are many human activities that impact the risks of flooding, such as deforestation or urban development, preventing water from being able to flow away or be absorbed as it would naturally.

By understanding flood risks you can more effectively prepare yourself for the event of a flood, and ttherefore minimize the amount of destruction a flood could have on your home and your overall safety.
