ABSTRACT

FEMA Fact Sheet: Inland Flooding   [open pdf - 29KB]

"The next time you hear hurricane -- think inland flooding! While storm surge has the highest potential to cause hurricane related deaths, more people died from inland flooding associated with tropical systems from 1970 to 1999. Since the 1970's, inland flooding has been responsible for more than half of all deaths associated with tropical cyclones in the United States. Flooding from hurricanes can occur hundreds of miles from the coast placing communities, which would not normally be affected by the strongest hurricane winds, in great danger. Take steps now to protect your financial well-being before a hurricane strikes."
