The cost of flooding

Has all the rain this week caused problems with flooding?  The National Flood Insurance Program has an online calculator that can show you the cost of a flood to your home at https://www.floodsmart.gov/floodsmart/pages/flooding_flood_risks/the_cost_of_flooding.jsp.  The tool allows you to enter the size of your house and how deep a flood to consider and gives you an estimate for the cost of the damage that would result.

You can read about this tool and more in the latest newsletter issue from the National Hydrologic Warning Council, http://www.hydrologicwarning.org/.
