With more rain and possible flooding as we continue into the week, it’s important to make the right choices when protecting yourself and your family. Here are some helpful flood tips from the National Flood Insurance Program.

During a flood

•Move to high ground. When it floods, go to higher ground. Avoid areas subject to flooding. Be aware of streams, drainage channels, and areas known to flood, so you are not cut off from your evacuation routes.

•Watch out for water. Don’t walk across flowing streams or drive on flooded roads. Moving water just 6 inches deep can knock you off your feet and cause an injury. Even 2 feet of water is enough to sweep a car off the road.

•Listen for updates. Listen to the radio or TV for information. Be sure to follow the instructions of local authorities.

•Turn off power. Turn off all utilities at the main power switch and close the main gas valve if advised to do so. Don’t touch any electrical devices if you’re wet or in standing water.

After a flood

•Check for damage. Check for structural damage before re-entering your home. If you suspect damage to water, gas, electric, or sewer lines, contact authorities.

•Remove wet items. Immediately remove wet carpeting, furniture, and bedding. Any item holding moisture can develop mold within 24 to 48 hours. Clean and disinfect everything touched by floodwaters. Get cleanup tips at emergency.cdc.gov/disasters/floods.

•Plan before you repair. The rebuilding decisions you make now to lower your risk and insurance costs can result in big benefits over the long term. Contact your local building inspection or planning office or your county clerk’s office to get more information.

•File your flood insurance claim. To file your claim, you’ll need your insurance company’s name, your policy number, and a number where you can be reached. Take photos of any water in the house and anything damaged in your home. Make a detailed list of all damaged or lost items.

•Ask about disaster assistance. Federal disaster assistance might be available if the president has declared a federal disaster. When available, this assistance typically comes in the form of a loan and must be paid back with interest.
