WERNER VOICE: Flooding and Health

Rochester General Hospital
October 2018 Edition


While Rochester isn’t prone to hurricanes, flooding is a commonplace occurrence. Between 2012 and 2017, 27 flood events were reported in Monroe County, with over half resulting in property damage. The health effects of floods, from exposure to contaminated waters to psychological trauma, are well-documented in the literature.
