Flood Preparedness

Many parts of South Snohomish County flood every year. Flooding most commonly occurs from November through February during periods of heavy rainfall. Preparing in advance will save residents time and reduce risks to families and their property.

One of the most important things that residents can do to help prevent flooding is to ensure storm drains remain clear in their neighborhoods. Clearing leaves and debris from storm drains will reduce the risk of drainage problems.

Another way to protect your home is to purchase flood insurance. A standard homeowner insurance policy will not cover flood damage. Contact your insurance agent or learn more about flood insurance at:
