Individual Preparedness Resources


With warmer weather approaching, so will the Spring storms and flooding. Did you know flooding is Pennsylvania’s top hazard? Just about anywhere it can rain, it can flood. Many of our major flooding events tend to occur during the spring months after a big snow melt combined with heavy rain. We also tend to see the skies open up during hurricane season, when tropical systems dump heavy rain across the Commonwealth. Both tend to cause flooding near rivers, streams and creeks. But lately, we have grown accustom to highly-localized, heavy rain events causing flash flooding, well away from any floodplains. Flooding is a big hazard and we have a few tips to help prepare and mitigate the impacts of flooding.
