You know all of the snow we just got? Well, it will eventually melt and go somewhere,
The National Weather Service has released its first spring flood outlook and our heavy snowpack means the potential for rising rivers and streams is elevated. Potential impacts could vary depending on how fast we warm up over the next two months and, of course, how much more snow or rain we get.
Floods are among the most frequent and costly natural disasters. Flooding often occurs following a hurricane, thawing show, or several days of sustained rain. Flash floods occur suddenly, due to rapidly rising water along a stream or low-lying area. Learn what to do to keep your loved ones safe.
As a Minnesota homeowner, you don't need to wait for the flooding to happen to take action. Here are some websites with helpful information: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the MN Department of Public Safety (DPS),the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH), and the American Red Cross.
