Over the next several days, the Florida Panhandle is forecasted to have quite a bit of wet weather moving through.  With this weather comes the potential for flash flooding, structural leaks, and wind driven rains.  To help reduce the likelihood of your home or business receiving water damages, take precautionary measures now:

  • Clean out roof gutters and downspouts. Clogged gutters allow water to back up onto your roof, increasing the chance of water intrusion into your home or business.
  • Remove loose debris from your yard. Debris, such as fallen tree limbs or unsecured lawn furniture can become dangerous during heavier winds.  These items can cause structural damage, such as broken windows, which can lead to water intrusion in your home.
  • Know Your Zone. Determine your flood zoning and prepare appropriately.  If you live in a flood prone zone, preparing sandbags may be necessary to help protect your structure.  Learn more about Bay County’s Flood Zones at https://www.baycountyfl.gov/508/FEMA-Flood-Zones.
  • Follow guidance of local officials. Just as in a hurricane situation, flash flooding and heavy thunderstorms can cause the potential need for evacuation.  Follow the instruction given by local officials to keep yourself and your loved ones safe.
