March is spring and flood safety month in the United States. With spring weather arriving, the risk for natural disasters such as floods, increases in workplaces and homes. Monitoring flood warnings is crucial in order to maintain safety and effectively communicate information to people.
Floods are the most common natural disaster in the United States. Failing to evacuate flooded areas or entering flood waters can lead to injury or death.
