Flood Safety

8/7/2017 (Permalink)

As we move into the heart of hurricane season, we all need to be mindful that August and September are the busiest months for both Tropical Storms and Hurricanes. Even with a slow start to the season, Mother Nature can change her mind very abruptly!  How are you prepared for a hurricane?  What about what comes after a hurricane?  It is common to see a storm with heavy down pours of rain causing flooding in the most protected neighborhoods.  Do you know what to do during a flood?  SERVPRO of Sugar Land has a few tips for you to follow in case an event was to happen:

  • Be prepared, create an evacuation plan
  • Learn and identify different evacuation routes to be able to evacuate quickly
  • If public transportation is relied on, contact the local emergency management for evacuation information
  • Turn Around, Don't Drown! ® Moving water above two feet can knock you down; one foot of water can move vehicles away
  • Move to higher ground if there is a chance of flash flooding
  • Driving during high rain falls can be extremely dangerous.  Stay update by checking service announcements through the National Weather Service.
