...SOUTH DAKOTA SEVERE WEATHER AWARENESS WEEK...DAY FOUR
...FLOODS AND FLASH FLOODS...

ON A NATIONAL LEVEL...
FLOODS AND FLASH FLOODS CLAIM NEARLY 200 LIVES ANNUALLY...FORCE
300,000 PERSONS FROM THEIR HOMES...AND RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE
IN EXCESS OF 2 BILLION DOLLARS. CHARACTERISTICALLY...75 PERCENT
OF FLASH FLOOD DEATHS OCCUR AT NIGHT WITH HALF OF THE VICTIMS
DYING IN THEIR AUTOMOBILES OR OTHER VEHICLES.  IT MAY BE
DIFFICULT TO BELIEVE...BUT MANY DEATHS OCCUR WHEN PERSONS KNOWINGLY
DRIVE AROUND ROAD BARRICADES INDICATING THE ROAD IS WASHED OUT AHEAD.

LAST YEAR IN SOUTH DAKOTA...
FLOODING AND FLASH FLOODING CAUSED EXTENSIVE DAMAGE TO CROPS...
PROPERTY AND PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE SUCH AS BRIDGES AND ROADS LAST
YEAR.

ARE YOU PREPARED...
ASSUME A THUNDERSTORM PRODUCES 6 INCHES OF RAIN IN LESS THAN 6 HOURS
TIME NEAR YOUR COMMUNITY. STORMS OF THIS MAGNITUDE OR GREATER OCCUR
SEVERAL TIMES EACH YEAR IN THE U.S...WOULD YOU KNOW WHAT ACTION TO
TAKE TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND THE PEOPLE WHO DEPEND ON YOU FOR SAFETY?
AFTER A MAJOR FLOOD EVENT ONE OF THE MOST COMMON QUOTES FROM THE
SURVIVORS OF THE FLOOD IS THE EXPRESSION THEY DID NOT BELIEVE
IT COULD HAPPEN TO THEM OR IN THEIR COMMUNITY.

BEFORE THE FLOODING...
THERE IS NOTHING ANYONE CAN DO TO PREVENT THE OCCURRENCE OF
FLASH FLOOD PRODUCING RAINFALL. HOWEVER...BY STRIVING FOR
SOUND FLOOD PLAIN ZONING...DEVELOPING AN EMERGENCY ACTION
PLAN IN ADVANCE OF THE DISASTER...PURCHASING FLOOD INSURANCE
AT LEAST 30 DAYS BEFORE THE FLOODING...AND BEING AWARE OF THE
DANGERS ASSOCIATED WITH EXTREMELY HEAVY RAINFALL AND FLOODING...THERE
IS A CHANCE OF DECREASING THE DEATH TOLL AND PROPERTY DAMAGE
THAT RESULTS FROM FLASH FLOODING.
