Be Prepared for the January Micro Storm In Citrus Heights
SERVPRO Is Prepared to Help You If Emergency Services Are Needed Following the Micro Storm
A severe weather pattern, carrying torrential rains, ice, and snow, at higher elevations, will pummel the West Coast for up to a week beginning January 7, 2017. Significant amounts of precipitation threaten the most dangerous flooding the northern portion of the Central Valley has experienced since at least 1997 if not 1986. Drought-lowered reservoirs may overflow and aquifers will become supersaturated, unable to absorb the rain predicted to fall. Up to 16 inches of rain are expected, triggering widespread flooding and mudslides. Save SERVPRO's number on your phone right now to ensure a call that delivers the full menu of solutions we offer if storm damage and flooding jeopardize your Sacramento area home and safety over the next week.
Residents of Citrus Heights must be ready for this micro storm, protecting the outside perimeter of your property with sandbags provided by their municipality or home improvement outlets if you live on the floodplain. Safeguard the contents of your home by moving items to the upper levels of your dwelling, or raising them off the floor with pallets or shelving. Cover valuables and porous furnishings with plastic sheeting, for an added measure of protection, should roofs or windows fail during the micro storm. Check storm drains on the streets near you property before the heavy rain begins. If leaves, branches, or other debris block them, take the time and effort to clear the curbside grids. This debris removal will help the sewer system in your neighborhood reduce standing water, a proactive measure that takes a little time to do, yet may provide big benefits.
