After the Flood Resources

If you are in possession on this material it is because you, or someone you know has been devastated by the recent flooding event. This tragic act of Mother Nature has undoubtedly turned your world upside down. I have compiled the attached to assist you in your cleanup and recovery. My best advice to you is to not rush to rebuild, but to think thru your decisions keeping in mind the long- term decisions and the implications they have, whether this is your forever home or a transition home. The repair and rebuild decisions you make now, may inadvertently cost you more money in the future on flood insurance premiums or compromise the resale value or appeal. My best advice is before you rebuild, please consult with a mitigation professional, so that you are making informed decisions, which are in your best interest.

I've known Lisa since she was Chair of the Association of State Floodplain Managers. She has long been in the forefront of moving floodplain management forward while being very aware of the needs, responsibilities and limitations of the states and municipalities that carry out floodplain management approaches.
