First blizzards & now flooding. Iowa is NEVER boring."
First blizzards (which I love by the way, I am snowshoe jucky!), then ice dams on roofs. Now we are onto flooding, so much for spring coming in like a lamb. Lion, and boy, we can the roar!
So flooding...what does it mean for a property owner? Or someone looking to become an owner?
(And yes, it means more than just cleaning up flood debris and mess).
Things to consider:
This map is a great tool & you can zoom in with high precision.
Although FEMA & NFIP is an American thing, flooding happens everywhere and is handled differently everywhere. Below is a picture I took in Heidelburg in 2012. Look closely, they have recorded flooding since 1788 (when the bridge was built). I am amazed the bridge has lasted through it all and is living proof of how flooding ebbs and flows.
Happy house hunting peeps! And be informed about flooding in the area you are looking.
