  CREEK AWARENESS | FEMA FLOOD ZONES | STORM PREPAREDNESS 
STORM DRAIN SYSTEM 

Floods can happen everywhere, making them one of the country's most common natural disasters.  Flooding poses a greater threat in low-lying areas, near water, and downstream from dams.  Even the smallest streams, creek beds stormdrains can overflow and create flooding.  

During periods of heavy rain or extended periods of steady rain, be aware of the possibility of a flood.  Flash floods develop quickly - anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours.  Listen to local weather reports such as NOAA for flooding information.
