Aftermath of Storm Damage

Storm Damage Aftermath of Storm Damage This house boat and yacht suffered significant damage during strong winds.

Powerful winds are one of the many deadly forces during a storm, or hurricane. However, the greatest threat to life actually comes from water. A storm surge is a dangerous event, where furious winds swirling around the hurricane, are driving deadly flows of water from our seas to the shores. This combined with the normal tides, can increase the water level by 30 feet or more! Having a storm surge can severely erode beaches and coastal highways. The pounding waves can take out boats and buildings, as you can see in the picture. As the water moves inland, rivers and lakes may be affected, and add to the damage from rising flood levels. While we can’t prevent storm surge, we do have a system that can warn us of the incoming threat. When a hurricane slams our coast, it’s important to be aware of all the dangers. Don’t take unnecessary risks during a storm. Conditions can change in the blink of an eye. It's important to know your evacuation routes, and where to go.

Houses offer an ample food supply for mold to grow because of the drywall, wood, insulation, and paper. When these materials become damp or wet, settled spores can begin to grow into mold. Depending on the type of mold, it may colonize, or begin to spread, in 1 to 12 days. Luckily, the right team was called out to do the job!

Storm Damage Protecting from Edgewater Floods Protect your Edgewater home or business before the worst happens.

There are several times throughout the year when there is potential for flooding. Examples would be spring storms at high tide with heavy rain fall for a long period of time, summer hurricanes with storm surge, and the winter storms with quick heavy rain that can cause flash flooding. Please read below on how to be prepared and how to stay safe during a flood emergency.

What you can do before the flood

  • Know your flood risk.
  • Make a flood emergency plan.
  • Build or restock your emergency preparedness kit, including a flashlight, batteries, cash, and first aid supplies.
  • Consider buying flood insurance.
  • Familiarize yourself with local emergency plans. Know where to go and how to get there should you need to get to higher ground, the highest level of a building, or to evacuate.
  • Stay tuned to your phone alerts, TV, or radio for weather updates, emergency instructions, or evacuation orders.

Basic Flood Safety Tips:

  • Turn Around, Don’t Drown! ®
  • Avoid walking or driving through flood waters.
  • Just 6 inches of moving water can knock you down, and 2 feet of water can sweep your vehicle away.
  • If there is a chance of flash flooding, move immediately to higher ground. Flash floods are the #1 cause of weather-related deaths in the US.
  • If floodwaters rise around your car but the water is not moving, abandon the car and move to higher ground. Do not leave the car and enter moving water.
  • Avoid camping or parking along streams, rivers, and creeks during heavy rainfall. These areas can flood quickly and with little warning. Please visit Ready.gov for more information on how to stay prepared for all types of emergencies!

Our region is an area that has flooded in the past, and has the potential to flood again the future. It is extremely important to know how to stay safe during a flood emergency, and also how to prepare in advance of a flood.
