Storm Damage Flood Facts While flooding is super unusual in SoCal, you should always be prepared

While it may not be common in Southern California to get a lot of rain but when we do it seems to come in insane amounts. Here are some flood facts from SERVPRO corporate:

Flash floods can bring walls of water 10 to 20 feet high.

Flooding can be caused by spring thawing (snow and frozen grounds melting in the spring), heavy rains, snow melt runoffs, flash floods, and mudflows.

Floods are the most widespread natural disaster aside from wildfires. 

In preparation for a flood, it is important to stock up on first aid items, non-perishable foods, gallons of water, battery operated electronics, extra batteries, and personal hygiene necessities.
