Two things for fire safety
So Lanie Pope comes on the air and says “flash flood warning” what does she mean exactly? Well, we have to break that down and define what she means by each word and the order they are in. The word flash is pretty self-explanatory it is going to happen quickly. Flood is defined by “cover or submerge (a place or area) with water.” As a noun it adds “especially over what is normally dry land.” The word warning says that this condition is eminent that it will happen or is happening now.
Knowing whether or not you are in an area prone to flooding would be helpful to prepare for such a disaster. You can check the North Carolina Flood Risk Information System (NC FRIS) to see if you live in or close to an area that is prone to flooding. You also do not have to live in a flood plane to get flood insurance.
Homeowners and renters’ policies rarely cover flooding. Contact your insurance agency about getting flood insurance. Flood insurance is administered by FEMA and a helpful FAQ can be found here.
