Safety During a Flooding Event

4/22/2020 (Permalink)

SERVPRO of Bay County is Here to Help with Storm Damages in Panama City, Mexico Beach, Lynn Haven, and surrounding areas!

Storms can create a multitude of dangerous and costly conditions, such as hail, tornadoes, and flooding.  Especially in the lower lying areas of Florida, flash flooding and storm surge can be a threat to both property and personal safety.  In order to stay safe during a flooding event, it is important to adhere to the following guidelines:

  • Never drive into flood waters. Water can be much deeper than originally anticipated, and flood waters can easily overturn or wash away a car.
  • Never drink, bathe, or cook with flood water. Soil, dirt, and bacterial contaminants can exist in flood waters, making them unsafe for consumption.
  • Find the highest ground possible during a flood. Flood waters can move very quickly, and depth of water can increase dramatically in a matter of minutes.  If evacuation is not possible, then search for an area that is above the flooding area.
  • If you have evacuated, do not return to a flooded area until directed by local authorities. Flood waters can remain for days after a storm event, posing multiple safety and structural risks.

If you home or business has been affected by a flooding event, call SERVPRO of Bay County at 850-785-1077.  Our highly trained team of professionals is Here to Help make it “Like it never even happened.”
