PREPARE FOR THE STORM

Make a plan. Protect people, property and pets.

Protect People

Protect Property

  • Know flood risks in your area.
  • Purchase or renew a flood insurance policy. Homeowners policies do not cover flooding. It typically takes up to 30 days for a policy to go into effect, so the time to buy is well before a disaster.
  • Get flood coverage under the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

Protect Pets

 

AFTER THE STORM

Find shelter and stay safe. Heed all local orders.
