Floods are the #1 natural disaster in the United States. A devastating flood can occur at any time of the year. A major issue that affects everyone in an area that has been flooded is having adequate food, water, and first aid following the natural disaster. This brings up the critical detail of being prepared for an emergency situation such as a flood.
Nothing helps you and your family through a disaster then being prepared for it. An ample supply of food, water, and first aid is essential for survival but there are many more items you may want to consider. In addition to the essentials having flashlights, radios for communication, and a personal hygiene and sanitation kit can be crucial as well. Depending on the extent of damage you may not have running water or power for days. These emergencies supplies will help you be more comfortable and possible survive a flood. Something to keep in mind, most homeowner insurance does not cover floods; the government offers an insurance plan, though, called the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
