(ANDERSON) - Anderson city officials are preparing for yet another major flood.

City, county and state officials will be conducting an exercise today simulating a major flood to test the city's emergency operations plan.

Flooding is the number one disaster to affect a community. Flooding has resulted in 26 of 34 presidential disaster declarations within the state since 1954.

Local Emergency Management Deputy Director John Kinley says planning and emergency training is key to the response and recovery efforts should a major flood strike.

Anderson's preparedness comes on the 95th anniversary of the great flood of 1913.
