Floods are one of the most common hazards, striking small areas, cities, or entire states. Floods can occur at any time - during hurricanes, rain storms, or even when the local area weather is clear (e.g. - upstream rain, water release from a reservoir, broken water mains). If it rains, it can flood.
Flash floods are the number 1 cause of weather-related deaths in the US. Be especially weary in low-laying areas.
Flood Watch - be alert for changing conditions, flooding is possible.
Flood Warning - take immediate action, flood danger is present.
