For those feeling the effects of the Mighty Mississippi’s record flooding, there are a few places to turn for some relief and help.
The National Weather Service is keeping its site up to date to the minute on the flood stages of the river, which have already hit record heights in some locations. Parts of Tennessee, Mississippi and Louisiana are all predicted to see additional record flooding this week.
Homeowners who have already experienced flooding, or anticipate flooding, in their home should take a look at the Renovate Your World Flooding Resources for information on Determining Your Flood Risk, Flood Insurance Facts, Flood Damage Cleanup and more.
The National Weather Service flood website is also a good resource for flooding victims, providing an opportunity for homeowners to submit a flooding report and apply for federal assistance from FEMA.
Our thoughts are with all those who face flooding this spring. We hope the waters recede soon and lives can get back to normal.
