You've probably heard the phrase before, "I'm not in a flood zone." What the speaker typically means is really, "I'm not in a high-risk flood zone," thinking that flooding is only possible in those high-risk areas. However, where it rains, it can flood. Flooding can and does happen in all flood zones. Even Zone X, the area of minimal flooding, is a flood zone, and about 40% of NFIP claims in the past five years come from these areas.

Tomorrow is Wear Blue Wednesday

TFMA leads a social media selfie campaign called Wear Blue Wednesday. Get your leadership, floodplain, permitting, stormwater, development, communication, or other relevant departments together for photos wearing blue and then share them with your community. Let everyone know what you do and the ways you are protecting people and property from flood damage. Use the hashtags #Iwearblue#floodprep21, #txwx and more.
