|Prevention strategies in flooding focus upon pre-event and
post-event measures. Before a flood, one is concerned with providing an early warning to
flash flood events, as well as public education on flood hazards (automobile driving).
During and after the flood, the issue is one of maintaining proper sanitation systems and
proper control of vector populations.
