Flooding is the most common natural hazard in the U.S. Keeping communities safe and resilient against flooding is necessary to minimize damages, injuries, and loss of life. To assist communities in becoming stronger against flooding, FEMA Building Science has developed publications and guidance for different stakeholder groups who are at risk of flooding. Following this guidance allows for your community to experience less damages, as well as keeps building owners and occupants safe in the event of a flood.
