Flash Flood Risk: High!

Flood after Fire

Flood Brochure

Flash floods can affect burned land AND land downhill or downstream from burned areas. Stay aware of the weather, especially after heavy rain or rain that lasts for more than ½ hour. A flash flood after a fire carries with it not only water, but also ash, making the flow material extremely dense like liquid cement.

If you think you may have a flood risk due to wildfire, talk to your insurance agent NOW about FEMA National Flood Insurance. Even areas that don’t typically flood are at risk when downhill from burned areas.
