Flooding, as a natural hazard, has been a part of the county’s conflict with nature throughout history. High runoff produced by excessive rainfall and/or sudden spring thaws after periods of heavy snowfall will cause a river or other bodies of water to overflow and inundate areas, causing or threatening damage. The loss of life and severe damages may and do result when floodwaters strike cities, industries, and farms located in or near river valleys.
