Floods

Floods are one of the most common natural hazards in the United States and are the most prevalent type of natural disaster occurring in Pennsylvania. Over 94 percent of the State’s municipalities have been designated as flood-prone areas. Both seasonal and flash floods have been causes of millions of dollars in annual property damages, loss of lives, and disruption of economic activities (Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency [PEMA] 2013).
