Destroyed Historic House by River Gets New Life: Full Mitigation Best Practice Story, 'Culpeper County, Virginia'
United States. Federal Emergency Management Agency
This document is part of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Best Practices Portfolio. The Best Practices Portfolio is a collection of true stories about people and communities who have experienced disasters, and what mitigation they used to survive, rebuild, and prepare for disasters. From the document: "When the Rapidan River in northern Virginia crested 30.5 feet above flood stage in June of 1995, devastating the Furloughs' historic 145-year-old house, they knew what they would do: rebuild on their home site by the river, elevate it, and get flood insurance." This and other individual FEMA Best Practices documents are also combined in "Mitigation Best Practices: Public and Private Sector Best Practice Stories for All Activity/Project Types in All States and Territories Relating to All Hazards [August 10, 2011]," which can be accessed at the following link: www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=683132.
