24 Hours Flood Damage in Oceanside
While it is best known for earthquakes and the northern areas known for its wildfires, and despite its reputation for moderate temperatures and cloudless, blue skies California is quite prone to heavy rains and flooding. 90% of floods in this area are caused by what is known as “river line flooding.” This type of flooding generally occurs due to an excessive amount of rainfall, runoff, or levee failure. The most recent and notable example of rive line flooding in California was in January 2017. The Russian River rose approximately three whole feet above the flood line and overran about 500 houses, flooding them with water. In addition to creating areas of mudslides and numerous roads were closed down going in various directions. It left about 570,000 people without power and led to the evacuation of over 3000. As if the threat of that happening throughout the rainy season wasn’t enough you should also consider broken pipes, poor drainage, clogged rain gutters, a damaged foundation, and malfunctioning appliances are just some of the other things in your home potentially waiting to cover your floors with water.
After your home has been flooded there are several necessary steps that you need to take. Checking your home for structural damage such as cracks in the foundation, broken doors or windows, wet insulation, and various electrical issues is imperative. You may also have furniture that has been contaminated, along with carpeting and appliances that have been ruined. Equally important is photographic documentation of any damage to not only the structure but your personal items as well.
