Did you know that flooding claims more lives than any other weather phenomenon and is in the top four killers in the United States after heart disease, automobiles, and fire? While we cannot stop a flood, we can plan for it and learn from past flooding events in order to better mitigate damage. The first National Flood Workshop and Forum, to be held in Houston October 24-26, will bring together disparate professions and businesses that have an association with flooding.
There will be speakers from around the country and workshop sessions training professionals in topics ranging from forecasting to emergency preparedness.
