They can occur in the spring through autumn months from an excessive rainy season. Whatever the reason, we are not really safe from floods. While we know we should flee to higher grounds and heed evacuation warnings; we also have to return home where our houses may be, at least partially, covered in flood waters.

There are so many things to look out for after a flood. Your safety and health are important. Keep yourself and your family safe. Be on the lookout for the risks and practice the above precautions. You must also be prepared for the danger of wildlife. Many household pets express their fear through anger. Be cautious of what you ingest. Many food and water sources may have been contaminated and are no longer safe for consumption.
