Stay Dry, New Orleans!

July is one of our rainiest months. Some rain events can be especially heavy, with many inches of rain falling in an hour. When heavy rain outpaces the ground’s ability to absorb water and the drainage system’s capacity, minor and even major flooding can happen. Check out these tips to protect your family and your property from rain:

Stay safe during heavy rain. Never walk or drive through flooded areas. Call 911 to report dangerous street flooding and view those reports at

Understand your flood risk. Some types of buildings and some areas of the city are more prone to flooding. Learn more.

Insure your building and contents with flood insurance, the only insurance that covers flood damage. New flood maps were adopted in 2016, making flood insurance more affordable to many New Orleanians. Plus, you might be required to have flood insurance. Learn more.

There are simple, low-cost ways you can reduce your risk. Install green infrastructure, like a rain garden or rain barrel to help hold excess rain water. Clean gutters, downspouts, and in front of catch basins to help rain get to the drain. Learn more.

Until next month,
