Severe weather can come quickly and without warning, and can also bring a flood following it. Heavy rains may cause excess rain to collect in bodies of water and overflow. This amount of rainfall can also be heavy enough that the ground cannot absorb it all quickly enough, causing a flood in your yard. This flood can leak into the basement, possibly damaging possessions and the home’s foundation as well.
It’s important that you know the best steps to prepare for a storm in order to prevent water from entering your home and causing damage. There are several ways to manage stormwater runoff and prevent damage.
