Flood damage can occur anywhere!
Flood and water damage occur in homes and businesses more often than you may realize. This type of damage can result from a storm or hurricane damaging your area. Regardless of where you’re located, flood water can reach you, whether you live in the mountains, the beach, or even the desert.
It is important to remain mindful of the following safety tips:
- Avoid floodwaters if possible. If you are caught in an area where the water reaches above your ankles, find another path or walk another way.
- If you reach a flooded road when driving, find a way around or follow the directions of safety personnel. Many vehicles can be carried away by as little as 2 feet of moving water!
- Be cautious of consuming or bathing in water found outside since disease can be carried by contaminated floodwaters.
