We were all reminded of this last week as the torrential rain flooded Frederick County. Roads were impassable, schools closed, internet disconnected and some even lost power. Mother Nature reminds us routinely that we are not in control, so be prepared.
I highly recommend you print the FEMA factsheets and store in an easy to find notebook for reference. They cover every topic, from floods to winter storms, even earthquakes. You might be thinking earthquakes aren’t a concern here. Wrong. As recently as 2005, Maryland had a level VI earthquake, and it was not the only extreme weather event news
