Heavy Rain & Potential For Flooding, Call Us!

6/20/2022 (Permalink)

A car drives through a water covered road in a rain storm. SERVPRO of Oyster Bay is available this summer when heavy rains cause flooding in Oyster Bay and the surrounding areas, call us anytime!

The threat of flooding from a storm surge in a hurricane is real. A meteorologist will use storm surge to calculate the possibility of damage. The statistic measures the number of feet they anticipate the tide will exceed what is considered normal high tide. We've seen the storm surge effects first-hand in New York City/Staten Island, New Jersey, Connecticut, Rhode Island & Massachusetts.

However, we are seeing an increase in flood damage due to flooding caused by slow moving rain & thunderstorms which can at times drop an unusual amount of rain. These storms have been responsible for more property loss than storm surge in recent years. This is due to the fact that slow moving storms can bring down torrential rains in larger areas. In some cases, one area could see more rain in 48 hours that they receive in a full month. This extreme rainfall causes floods in rivers, storm drains, low-lying places and other areas.

SERVPRO has the ability to respond to extreme weather conditions. We work hard to determine the best ways to respond in the immediate aftermath to any event and to provide all remediation and construction.
