... Today's topic for flood safety awareness week is flood
safety...

The National Weather Service (nws) in Little Rock, Arkansas, along
with the Arkansas department of emergency management has declared
March 18th through the 22nd as flood safety awareness week. Each
day during the week will feature information about a different
flood related topic.

... Flood safety...

Nearly every day, flooding happens somewhere in the United States
or its territories. It causes more damage in the country than any
other weather related event. On average, floods cause eight
billion dollars in damages and eighty to ninety fatalities annually.
More than half of these deaths are the result of driving into flood
waters. Being prepared and knowing how to stay safe will help you
and your loved ones survive a flood.

Emergency preparedness is the responsibility of every citizen in
Arkansas. All arkansans are urged to make preparedness a priority
and work together as a team to ensure that individuals, families,
and communities are ready for flood disasters. Join US this week
and help spread the word about flood safety.
