Winter Flooding: The Causes
Over the last few weeks, many communities have experienced a sudden thaw of a snow with periods of heavy rain which produced large amounts of runoff in a short period of time. Because the ground is hard and still frozen from low winter temperatures, the water could not penetrate and be reabsorbed. Water has run off the surface and flowed into lakes, streams and rivers, causing excess water to spill over their banks. This water is, unfortunately, finding ways into people's basements and even first levels!

Residents in areas susceptible to winter flooding need to prepare in advance for flood conditions. Before the threat of flooding becomes imminent, residents should:
  • Purchase a flood insurance policy
  • Review current insurance policy and become familiar with what is and is not covered
  • Make a flood plan, plan evacuation routes and keep important papers in a safe, waterproof place
  • Itemize and take pictures of possessions
