Prepare for Flooding During Hurricane Season
Stay prepared for possible flooding throughout hurricane season. Whether you live in a hurricane-prone area or not, heavy rains or flooding may still affect you.
Flooding can happen during any season. Some areas of the country are at greater risk at certain times of the year. While coastal areas are at higher risk for flooding during hurricane season, the Midwest is more at risk in the spring and during heavy summer rains. Ice jams occur in the spring in the Northeast and Northwest. Even the deserts of the Southwest are at risk during the late summer monsoon season.
