Be Flood Alert:
Visit the National Flood Insurance Program Site


FACT: Flooding is the most common natural disaster in the United States, affecting every region and state.

FACT: Flood insurance can be the difference between recovering and being financially devastated.

FACT: The damage from just one inch of water can cost more than $20,000.

Last Updated: 07/25/2017


The National Flood Insurance Program aims to reduce the impact of flooding on private and public structures. It does so by providing affordable insurance to property owners and by encouraging communities to adopt and enforce floodplain management regulations. These efforts help mitigate the effects of flooding on new and improved structures. Overall, the program reduces the socio-economic impact of disasters by promoting the purchase and retention of general risk insurance, but also of flood insurance, specifically.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Business Continuity Plan

[(c)1995 MIT; First Published Here December 2000]

Massachusetts Institute of Technology — a coeducational, privately endowed research university — is dedicated to advancing knowledge and educating students in science, technology, and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century. The Institute has more than 900 faculty and nearly 10,000 undergraduate and graduate students, and is organized into five Schools:

  • Architecture and Planning
  • Engineering
  • Humanities

  • Social Sciences, Management, and Science

and the Whitaker College of Health Sciences and Technology. Within these are twenty-seven degree-granting departments, programs, and divisions. In addition, a great deal of research and teaching takes place in interdisciplinary programs, laboratories, and centers whose work extends beyond traditional departmental boundaries. The board of trustees, known as the Corporation, consists of about 75 leaders in higher education, business and industry, science, engineering and other professions. MIT is located on 153.8 acres that extend more than a mile along the Cambridge side of the Charles River Basin.
