2018 FLOOD SEASON PREPAREDNESS – Flash Flooding and Spring Run-Off

With the lack of snowpack Gunnison County is experiencing this year comes the potential for flash flooding during spring and summer monsoon seasons. If you are a property owner in an area prone to high water, flooding or flash flooding, please consider the following:
• Is your property flood insurance in force and up to date?
• What is covered by your flood insurance?
• Have you taken steps to prepare your property for flooding (berms, sandbags, etc.)?
• Are there items that could be moved to higher points on your property or in your home in the event of a flood?
• Have you and your family identified where you would go and what you would take with you should you need to evacuate?

Prepare early – don’t wait until the last minute.
