The week of March 16 through March 22 is NOAA's National Flood Safety Awareness Week. This is an important awareness campaign that can educate the public on the dangers of flooding and steps they can take to protect themselves. One way to ensure protection, at least financially, is through flood insurance. Most homeowners' insurance policies do not cover flood damage.
