Warmer spring temperatures may create conditions for flooding. Watch or listen to local news for potential flood watches or warnings in your area.

Both flooding and resulting power failures may make your food unsafe to eat.

Flood water can carry dirt, raw sewage, oil, or chemical waste. Any food that comes into contact with flood water should be thrown out.

If your food establishment/ business is flooded, call us at 1-800-265-7293 to seek assistance. A flood-damaged food premise cannot re-open until the public health inspector gives permission in writing.
