Flash Floods = Danger

3/10/2023 (Permalink)

Storm rolling in Spring down pours can lead to flash flooding

The National Weather Service explains that flash flooding is mostly caused by torrential down pours from extreme heavy rain. Depending on many factors – including intensity of rainfall, the location of the downpour, soil type, etc. – the timing of the flood will fluctuate. A flash flood can occur as quickly as 3 hours from a down pour.

Urban areas are more likely to experience flash flooding than rural areas due to the nature of the streets, neighborhoods and buildings. The landscape of a town or city doesn’t allow for runoff in the event of a major rainfall or thunderstorm, leading to water filling low spots very quickly.

In the event your home or commercial property is affected by a flash flood emergency, SERVPRO Duncanville/Desoto is always ready to assist with water cleanup. Our trained professionals are on call 24 hours, 7 days a week to help you when needed.
