Do Your Clients Know Their Post-Wildfire Flooding Risk?

As communities across the West recover from devastating wildfires, residents living in both affected and surrounding areas face higher risk of flooding.

Wildfires can drastically change the terrain and make the ground less able to absorb water. Even areas that do not typically flood are now at risk for flash flooding and mudflows for up to several years after a wildfire.

Agents near impacted areas are encouraged to use the resources below to work with clients to raise awareness about the risk of flooding after wildfires.
