PRESS RELEASE For Immediate Release: SEPTEMBER TO BE PROCLAIMED FLOOD AWARENESS MONTH IN MASSACHUSETTS

State nonprofits, state agencies and others join together to bring the awareness of flooding to Massachusetts stakeholders

The
Governor, along with members of the Massachusetts Legislature, are proclaiming September
Flood Awareness Month in Massachusetts. 
This is being done to align with National Preparedness Month, which is
also September.

Massachusetts
has the highest number of repetitive loss properties in New England, and is
repeatedly threatened with winter Nor’easters and Hurricanes.  Our communities regularly battle flooding
both coastally and inland from the various sources of water our state has.  Residents, business owners, and property
owners across the Commonwealth continue to face the loss of lives, business and
property in instances of inland and coastal flooding, and seek assistance in
preparing for and minimizing catastrophic loss.

The
month will kick off with a press conference and announcement of events with
elected and state officials and others at the Fort Point Channel, in Boston,
adjacent to the Binford Street Park, which is the site of flooding in past
years.  The press conference will begin
at 1pm on Wednesday, September 16th.  The
press is invited to attend.

After
the kick off, thanks to collaborations with the Office of Representative
Patrick Kearney (Scituate, D), State nonprofits, state agencies, and others,
there will be educational events and webinars for the entire month of
September.  Additionally, National
Preparedness Month events are being coordinated to include flood awareness
information.  A list of events, and a
home page for Flood Awareness Month in Massachusetts, can be found www.floodawareness.org[1].
