Things You Can Do To Mitigate Against Flooding

Flood Wall Around a Hospital in Binghamton, NY

According to Sandra Knight on the FEMA website, Flooding is the nation's number one natural disaster, and it can occur inland, along the coast, and across every region of the country. Even though you may think your community has little or no risk of flooding, the reality is that anywhere it rains, it can flood. In fact, roughly 25% of all flood insurance claims are filed in low to moderate flood risk areas. It is important to keep in mind that the risk of flooding isn't based only on your community's history, but ion a variety of factors like rainfall, topography, river-flow and tidal-surge data and changes resulting from new construction in your community. Those all play a part in what actual flood risk you face.

There are flood proofing measures you can take to help prevent or minimize the impact of flooding on your home and its contents. A few examples include:

- Elevate your furnace, water heater and electric panel in your home.

- Install check valves to prevent water from backing up into the drains of your home

- When practical, homeowners can construct barriers to stop floodwater from entering your home

- Seal the basement walls with waterproofing compounds.
