Rainstorms Cause Water Damage in San Ysidro?

2/14/2023 (Permalink)

Stacks of sandbags are shown. We restore storm damage 24 hours a day in San Diego.

Our local team in Otay Mesa and San Ysidro responds to storm damage emergencies 24 hours a day. Last month an atmospheric river brought heavy rain to San Diego County and caused street flooding in many parts of the county.

Here are some helpful tips from the United States Army Corps of Engineers for the best placement of sandbags:

  • Clear debris from the area where you want to build the barrier. Don’t build on uneven ground as sandbags need to settle flat.
  • Place the sandbags lengthways/parallel to the direction of the water flow. Ensure the open end of the bag is folded under the filled portion of the bag.
  • Flatten down each row of bags with your foot to eliminate gaps, create a tight seal and support the structure of the wall. Lay the rows like brickwork with each bag overlapping the one below by half.
  • When there are more than four rows, build the wall in a pyramid shape three times wider than it is tall. Seal the wall with plastic sheeting for added protection on the “wet” side and secure it with a row of sandbags across the top and along the bottom edge.
