Case Study: My Experience With

Where you are Most likely to Experience Floods in the United States in Spring-Summer 2019

More than a month ago, it was confirmed by the United States weather department that a total of twenty-five states were facing the highest risk of experiencing severe Floods in Spring-Summer of this year. Various sources had also announced this alarming news. Considering the fact that Nebraska and Iowa had already experienced late-winter floods with unforeseen and unexpected amounts of rain, this forecast did not come as a surprise. It remained a reason for concern nonetheless. Based on the current situation with the floods across Central US, the forecast is coming into full realization with each passing day it seems. A different source, albeit a reliable one, forecasted that floods would be experienced in a total of thirty-six states although they would be severe enough to cause serious damage in twenty-five states.

As we are well into the month of May, which is historically known for disastrous storms all across North America, it has started with substantial damages to the Central US states, as was predicted earlier by the weather department. This is not far from the predictions made by the weather department. Close to twenty-five tornadoes have already hit different parts of Texas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, and Missouri. The tornadoes wreaked havoc and flooded the city of Sulphur in Oklahoma, while Amarillo in Texas was bombarded with a hailstorm. The tornadoes and hailstorms also caused severe weather conditions in other regions distributed across Northern Texas, Central. Oklahoma, Southern Missouri and Northwestern Arkansas. These weather conditions resulted in power loss, damage of property and flooding. As of yet, the most severe incident of damage has been reported in Boone Arkansas where a house lost its roof as a tornado skimmed right past it. Although there have been injury reports from various parts of the cities and states that already been affected, there are no fatalities that have been recorded.

The high alert regions include the upper, middle and lower parts of the Mississippi basin, all regions around the great lakes, all regions around the Red River of the North, Eastern bank of the Missouri River, lower banks of the Cumberland River, lower banks of Ohio River and the whole of the Tennessee River basin. Make sure you, your loved ones or people you know in these regions have moved to safety for some time or have taken the necessary precautions to guarantee safety in readiness for the upcoming storms and the ensuing floods.

If you check the websites of some insurance companies, you will come across detailed guides explaining all the precautions that should be observed in readiness for the upcoming floods, and it is vital that you observe them.
