Ever been in a flood? Share your disaster story

Posted: Updated:

Have you ever been stuck in a flood or has the power in your home gone out for days at a time?

Benton County Emergency Service workers say if so they hope to hear your story. In our area mother nature can dish out all types of trouble, and workers want you to talk about your experiences and help prevent others from struggling through a natural disaster.

 "What we're asking people to do is share their story. Was there an emergency? Did they have to leave their house. Did they have an emergency kit. Did it help them. Did they not have one. Did they wish they had one because we can learn from our mistakes too," Benton County Emergency Service worker Sara Schwartz said.  

Workers say they most commonly hear about power outages and the need for better emergency kits, but regardless of the disaster you faced, they want to hear about it.
