I am kinda worried now........

We live near the mississippi river and they are saying in the next few weeks we are in for a bad flood. The worst it has even been. Make me wonder if it is as bad as they say we will we go?

i didn't know where to put this.

  • We live near the Missouri, and while we aren't directly in a flood zone, surrounding areas are really in for it too - they flood every year but this year is supposed to be the worst for this area too. Like others have said, be ready to go if you have to, get all your important "can't leave it behind" stuff in a big tub or something, prepare your house (get stuff off the floor in the basement or out of the basement, put stuff that's in cardboard boxes in rubbermaid tubs if you have to, etc), and pay attention to the weather. I know for our area they're predicting flood stage on April 1, May 1, and possibly even June 1 yet - just from the snow melting.

  • Health is good.. I'd make plans to leave the area and I would leave the area at the very first sign of rising waters. Protect yourself and your family.

  • Prepare yourself. Get all important "can't leave behind" items together, have extra stuff on hand, sand bags maybe?

  • Well, I would plan for it to get really bad, regardless. If you have somewhere to go, then go there. There's no sense in staying behind and getting hurt or worse. It never hurts to be prepared in an emergency.
