Flooding

Flooding is the most frequent severe weather event and the costliest natural disaster. Floods not only affect high-risk coastal areas but according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), 25% of flood insurance claims come from moderate-to-low-risk areas like Montgomery County. Just one inch of floodwater can cause up to $25,000 in damage. Montgomery County is committed to addressing adverse flood impacts to residents and businesses in the County.
