Flood zones generally indicate how much risk of flooding your property faces. This is why flood insurance companies, mortgages, and even the federal government would require you to carry one if you're in a high-risk area. Even low-risk areas experience flooding.

Urban flooding is caused by a lack of drainage in an urban area. When getting flood insurance for our home, it is important to know that our property is well-located, well-built, and not prone to urban floods as it is one of the highly recognized flood problems in the United States. In this topic, we talk about urban flooding and why it became a serious concern and a growing threat against flood damage and flood safety.

Flood is made up of water — this is an obvious fact — however, what most people tend to forget is that water flows into whatever area it can flow. This is why areas like rivers, creeks, drainage, and such allow water to peacefully pass us by. 

In this video, we look at what are floodways. We also look at how floodways can impact flood threats and flood insurance costs.
