Flash floods can occur within a few minutes or hours of excessive rainfall. Be aware of flood hazards no matter where you live or work, but especially if you are in low-lying areas,
near water, behind a levee or downstream from a dam. Even very small streams, gullies, creeks, culverts, dry streambeds or low-lying ground that appear harmless in dry weather can flood.
