Above Normal Flood Conditions Exist

According to to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) this spring will present a higher than normal risk of flooding, as already evident by the recent flooding in the Midwest. From an article on NOAA's website:

“We expect rains and melting snow to bring more flooding this spring,” said Vickie Nadolski, deputy director of NOAA’s National Weather Service. “Americans should be on high alert to flood conditions in your communities. Arm yourselves with information about how to stay safe during a flood and do not attempt to drive on flooded roadways – remember to always turn around, don’t drown.”
