Roar Closure caused by flooding Storms and Flash Flooding Present Dangers to Persons and Property. Call SERVPRO for Restoration and Cleanup

All of the danger surrounding flash floods can be scary. Winds can exceed 70 mph forcing large amounts of rain to enter your neighborhood like a stampeding herd of wild buffalo. You may have little to no warning before freeways and highways close, trapping you in a swift-moving current of water that cares very little about your safety.

Obviously, it is important to recognize the problem, remaining informed about flood warnings throughout the Phoenix area. Flood damage can happen fast and escape from a flash flood area can be rough. However, if you have a plan, avoid walking through moving water, or driving through flooded areas, you can safely evacuate without much of a problem.

It is possible to become trapped, unable to leave the confines of your home, making it necessary to store some supplies. Local drinking water can become contaminated by oil, gas, and sewage. Having water, food, clothing, and first aid available for each member of your family to survive for at least a week is best.

While you already understand not to drive through flooded roadways or bridges, it may not always be possible to stay on high ground. If your vehicle gets stuck, or it becomes submerged in water, remain calm, wait for your vehicle to fill with water. It can be scary, but if you wait until the vehicle is full of water, the doors open easier. You can then hold your breath, open the door, and swim to the surface. Flash flooding without warning, can become lethal.

You are likely to be told by local authorities that it is safe to return to your home at some point. However, returning without the right support can produce drastic results. You benefit more from contacting a company like SERVPRO to provide you with flood damage restoration services. We can be the first to enter your home and assess your situation correctly.
