Protect your property from flood damage

lifesaver-house

Marion County is fortunate to be approximately 110 feet above sea level, making large-scale flooding unlikely. Flash flooding, however, is a real concern for much of the county. Many parts of Marion are in low-lying regions or near bodies of water. In these regions, even a series of severe thunderstorms could send water to your front door.
