Severe flooding can endanger life and cause billions of dollars in property damage. Even moderate levels of flooding can extensively damage and disrupt building operations. Due to climate change and FEMA flood map revisions, many buildings not previously categorized as being at risk are now subject to flooding. As a result, insurers are informing their clients of the potential risks and associated increases in flood insurance coverage if flood mitigation procedures are not enacted. This presentation will discuss how to identify areas of facilities vulnerable to flooding, and the options and systems available to protect properties from potentially catastrophic damages to structures, building contents, and impacts on building operations.
