Welcome to the "Ham Radio El Paso" Web Site!

NPM 9/24 Tip of the Day - Floods - even shallow water - can be deadly

Floods are among the most frequent and costly natural disasters in terms of human hardship and economic loss. As much as 90 percent of the damage related to all natural disasters (excluding drought) is caused by floods and associated debris flow.

Regardless of how a flood occurs, the rule for being safe is simple: Head for higher ground and stay away from floodwater. Even a shallow depth of fast-moving floodwater produces more force than most people think. To learn how to prepare for a flood, visit http://www.ready.gov/floods. To find out if you live in a floodplain and to learn information about flood insurance, visit www.floodsmart.gov . Also, download the American Red Cross Flood App from the American Red Cross for the iPhone from iTunes Store.
