    Protect People from the Hazard

    December 11th, 2018

    Many times, flooding along the Minnesota River can be predicted up to a week in advance, giving ample warning to prepare for a potential flood event.  However, in the event of localized flooding due to a large rain event, plugged storm sewer drain, and storm ponds overflowing, the following tips will help protect you and your family in either type of flooding event:

    • Reduce the risk of damage from flooding by elevating critical utilities, such as electrical panels, switches, sockets, wiring, appliances, and heating systems.
    • In areas with repetitive flooding, consider elevating the entire structure.
    • Make sure basements are waterproofed and your sump pump is working.  Then, install a battery-operated backup in case of power failure.
    • Installing a water alarm will also let you know if water is accumulating in your basement.
    • Clear debris from gutters and downspouts.
    • Anchor any fuel tanks.
    • Move furniture, valuables, and important documents to a safe place.
    • Store copies of irreplaceable documents (such as birth certificates, passports, etc.) in a safe, dry place.  Keep originals in a safe deposit box.
    • Build an emergency supply kit:  Food, bottled water, first aid supplies, medicines, and a battery-operated radio should be ready to go when you need them.  Visit www.ready.gov for a complete disaster supply checklist.
    • Plan and practice a flood evacuation route.  Ask someone out of state to be your “family contact” in an emergency, and make sure everyone knows the contact’s address and phone number.
    • Make a pet plan.  Many shelters do not allow pets.  Make plans now on what to do with your pets if you are required to evacuate your residence.
