Staying Afloat During A Flood – Part 2


Last week, we spent some time talking about the threat of oncoming floods that poses a significant risk to low lying areas across the country – especially those along the Mississippi river and southern regions of the United States. The flooding is a constant reminder that even if we have all our preps in line, we may need to evacuate or shift gears to make sure our homes, families and preps are secure.

This week, we continue our conversation with a few life hacks and resourceful tools that can help keep you and your family safe and dry while others around you are wading in floodwaters. We’ll be sharing some of the tools professionals use to prevent flooding. And we’ll get into some of the ways you can get out in front of a flood by changing the way you store your preps.

But home protection is only the beginning. We’ll also get into transportation options, financial preparedness, animal care, personal protection, and in the end we’ll get into what it takes to rebuild when you return home.

There are many long-term problems associated with flooding that you can hedge against by preparing now and planning ahead. The forecast this year is not one you’ll see on your local news station until it is upon you. So take the time to check out the show and get your preps in order and you’ll be able to stand out as an island oasis among a neighborhood underwater.

Also, don’t miss out on our Pint-Sized Prepper Project of the Week where we demonstrate how you can create your own ice packs. Learn how to make these now to keep things cool during your next adventure, or in case your refrigerator should fail during a long-term outage!

  1. The most important thing that you should do is create a family emergency plan. Take time to rehearse and review it with your family. When it comes to floods, it’s important to understand the difference between a flood watch and a flood warning. A flood watch means that conditions in your area are right for flooding. If your area is under a flood watch, you’ll likely have some time to prepare your home and loved ones. If you’re under a flood warning, it means flooding is imminent, and you should immediately retreat to higher ground.
