Floods are the most predictable of our natural hazards and can occur far from rivers and creeks. For some types of floods, you may have a relatively long warning period and therefore time to prepare. However, flash floods can occur anywhere and with very little warning. This program explains where you should go for information about the possibility of your property being flooded, what to do when floodwaters approach and once they have receded. It also shows how the design of buildings and fences and the location of access roads can reduce the impact of flooding.
