..hurricane preparedness week 2018...

The National Weather Service offices in Maine have declared the week
of July 15th through 20th, hurricane preparedness week in Maine.
This is the fourth in a series of five public information statements
to be issued by the National Weather Service office in Caribou,
Maine containing information on hurricane safety and preparedness.

Todays topic: inland flooding from tropical storms and hurricanes

Hurricanes produce storm surge, tornadoes, and often the most deadly
of all - inland flooding. Inland flooding can be a major threat to
communities hundreds of miles from the coast as intense rain falls
from these huge tropical air masses. A quarter of the hurricane
fatalities during the past 50 years are a direct result of inland
flooding.

Thirty nine years ago, in 1972, hurricane Agnes produced floods in
the northeast United States which contributed to 122 deaths and $6.4
billion in damages. And more recently in 2011, Hurricane Irene
brought historic flooding to Vermont with up to 200 million dollars
of damage.

Here in New England, tropical systems can combine with mid-latitude
weather systems (extra-tropical or "hybrid") to produce very heavy
rains and flooding, even when the hurricane or tropical storm
remains well offshore. In 1996, a coastal storm that was supplied
tropical moisture from the circulation around Hurricane Lili (well
offshore) produced from 4 to 19 inches of rain across southern and
central New Hampshire and southwestern Maine and was responsible for
1 drowning death.

Here are some tips to protect you and your home from flooding.

1. Develop a flood emergency action plan.
2. Determine whether you live in a flood-prone area.
3. If flooding is possible, move valuable items from the basements
     or first floor to higher floors in your home. Have a checklist
     of these items in your emergency action plan.
4. Keep abreast of Road conditions through the news media. Move to
     a safe area before access is cut off by flood water.
5. If advised to evacuate, do so immediately.
6. Do not attempt to drive through a flooded roadway. If the roadway
     is flooded, turn around, don't drown.

Also, if you live in a flood-prone area, consider purchasing flood
insurance. Flood damage is not usually covered by homeowners
insurance policies. Do not make assumptions; check your policy.

The National flood insurance program, is a pre-disaster flood
mitigation and insurance protection program. The National flood
insurance program makes federally-backed flood insurance available
to residents and business owners in certain communities.

Question of the day: what causes the most fatalities in landfalling
hurricanes?

The answer by a wide margin is flooding. Just last year during
Hurricane Harvey, there were 70 drowning fatalities in Texas.

Now is the time to prepare for hurricanes and tropical storms:
