There are many reasons to prep. Being cut off due to flood and forced to evacuate is just one. I posted about evacuation, bug out bags, and edc bags previously. Events like this could put those plans to the test.
The Cedar River in eastern Iowa has reached its highest level since the damaging 2008 flood that killed one and caused $10 billion in damages — and with the river at 19.4 feet, dangerous flooding could occur at any time. At the request of the city, hundreds of Cedar Rapids residents have evacuated [emphasis mine]. (9/26/16)
