Flooding from storms and flash floods is unpredictable. If there has already been a history of seasonal rains with heavy flooding in your area, it’s best to be prepared and proactive.
Unfortunately, even with preparation for heavy rain, rainwater may still find a way to disrupt homes. Leaks from the upper parts of the house may lead to water flowing down and soaking walls, tiles, and ceilings.
