Nevada Floods. Are You Prepared? Flood Awareness Week is November 10-15, 2014
In Nevada, we have both flash floods and river floods even though most of us live in a desert environment. Whether you live near the foot of a mountain canyon, a dry wash, or on the floor of a broad river valley, you should make preparations ahead of time for damaging flood events. A team of local government officials and educators have worked with the Nevada Division of Water Resources to create an award‐winning new website, www.NevadaFloods.org. Are you prepared?
Nevada Flood Awareness Week starts next week. Be on the lookout for billboards, radio and television ads, along with special events. Check out www.NevadaFloods.org for a complete list of events and ways to prepare before, during and after a flood.
