We Survive Another Storm

We made it through another summer storm. Outside of a little flooding and power outages, no big deal. Good thing too.

By: Fort Worth Star-Telegram

Most of us aren’t really aware of the threats posed by Mother Nature, even after the violent storms that struck throughout the South and Midwest this spring. Two-thirds of the people taking part in a new America THINKS survey don’t realize how vulnerable their property could be in the event of a flood, and just seven-percent have taken steps to protect their homes if flooding should occur in their area. However, 55-percent believe it’s “likely” that sometime within the next five years a severe storm or flood will strike where they live. In addition, 44-percent don’t believe their community is adequately prepared to address the damage that could result from extreme weather hitting their area. But 63-percent would oppose allocating more tax dollars to projects that would help protect their community from flooding.
