Flooding is a temporary overflow of water onto land that is normally dry. In terms of number of lives lost and property damage, flooding is the most common natural disaster in the United States. Floods can occur at any time of the year, in any part of the country and at any time of the day or night. 

Understanding your risk and having a plan of action in the event of a flood can help you protect yourself, your loved ones, and your home.
