Flood Warning for San Diego?
Surf’s Up San Diego?
Last month brought unseasonably high temperatures to San Diego County and a high surf advisory and flood warning for the coastal towns. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), floods are the most common natural disaster in the United States, and floods may:
- Result from rain, snow, coastal storms, storm surges, and overflows of dams and other water systems.
- Develop slowly or quickly. Flash floods can come with no warning.
- Cause outages, disrupt transportation, damage buildings, and create landslides.
SERVPRO® of San Diego City SW responds to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day and can typically be on-site within four hours of your call. FEMA offers these instructions to follow if you are under a flood warning:
- Find shelter right away.
- Do not walk, swim or drive through floodwaters. Turn Around, Don’t Drown!
- Just six inches of moving water can knock you down, and one foot of moving water can sweep your vehicle away.
- Stay off of bridges over fast-moving water.
- Depending on the type of flooding:
- Evacuate if told to do so.
- Move to higher ground or a higher floor.
- Stay where you are.
