The sky is falling and the dam is breaking. The first action residents and businesses should do in the face of impending doom is to measure the threat. Many home owners and businesses near the Green River have already made the decision that the threat of a flood alone is too great, and they are leaving the valley. For home owners, this is not an easy transition in the current housing market, but some have determined that selling now and relocating is a better option than being flooded and having only the National Flood Insurance Program in compensation. For businesses, the decision to move might be a little easier, especially if they are tenants. Outside of an insurance contract, it might be possible to lease or rent a building to another party and insist in the lease that the tenant respond to the peril of flood.
