Worst Flooding in San Diego History?

1/19/2022 (Permalink)

Heavy rain falls during a severe storm. We restore storm damage 24-hours a day in San Diego County.

SERVPRO® of San Diego City SW has been mitigating and restoring storm damage for San Diegans for many years. We haven’t seen anything like the Flash Flood of 1821 recently. Here’s what happened that year:

That September, a wall of water cascaded down the steep mountain slopes of the east county and filled Mission Valley overnight. Orange objects bobbed up and down like corks on the fast-moving current: ripe pumpkins, hundreds of them, snatched from the fields of El Cajon Valley. The torrent was so strong it forged a levee of silt along its southern shore. It closed the channel to San Diego Bay and changed its course to Mission Bay. Since the day before had been clear, no one expected such a sudden, overwhelming deluge.

Call Us!

No matter how big the job is, we have the equipment, training, and experience to mitigate and restore flood damage. Our technicians are trained and certified by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification, the nonprofit certifying body for the cleaning and restoration industry.

When you have a storm damage emergency in your San Diego home or commercial business, you can rely on SERVPRO® of San Diego City SW to restore the damage, “Like it never even happened.” Call us today at 619-269-5004.

Franchises are independently owned and operated.
