In our last blog, we talked about the risk of wildfires in the state of Florida. Now, we’re going to talk about another kind of natural disaster that can create a hazard for Florida citizens: flooding.
In general, Floridians tend to face a greater risk of floods for one main reason—storms. Particularly during hurricane season, which stretches from June through the end of November, this state and the rest of the Gulf Coast of the United States are more likely to be affected by hurricanes than the rest of the country.
However, hurricanes aren’t the only thing that can put your home or business at risk of flooding. Storm surges, rising rivers, or heavy rainfall can cause your property to flood, too. It’s important to note that you may face a greater chance of experiencing flooding depending on where in the state you live. For instance, the Florida panhandle tends to face extreme flooding during hurricanes. Sarasota County and much of the rest of North Central Florida, on the other hand, don’t tend to experience flooding as much, though given that much of this area is on the coast, there is still risk involved in living here.
Your community may be at greater risk for flooding if:
- There are rivers and/or creeks nearby
- Most of the homes/businesses have been built at low elevation
- You experience intense hurricane seasons
