2021 Flood Safety Preparedness Week

This week is the average peak season for flooding in Georgia, and the National Weather Service office is marking this week as the 2021 Flood Safety Preparation Week. Flooding kills more people than any other kind of severe weather, and most of it is caused by poor behavior when people drive their cars over flooded roads and get washed away, or by flooding from hurricane storm surge and rain. You can read more facts about flooding and find ways to stay safe by “turning around” and not drowning when a flood comes to your area at https://www.weather.gov/ffc/flood_preparedness_2021.
