Atmospheric Rivers Cause Flooding in San Ysidro?

4/25/2023 (Permalink)

A clogged storm drain is shown. We are leaders in storm damage restoration services in San Diego.

Our local Otay Mesa/SanYsidro team is on call 24 hours a day to respond to storm damage emergencies in San Ysidro. Here are some tips from the San Diego County Department of Public Works for protecting your property from flooding:

  • Raise your furnace, water heater, and electric panel to higher floors or the attic if they are in areas of your home that may be flooded.  Raising this equipment will prevent damage. An undamaged water heater may be your best source of fresh water after a flood.
  • Install check valves in plumbing to prevent floodwater from backing up into the drains of your home. As a last resort, when floods threaten, use large corks or stoppers to plug showers, tubs, or basins.
  • Seal walls in basements with waterproofing compounds to avoid seepage through cracks
  • Keep insurance policies, documents, and other valuables in a safe deposit box
  • Move furniture and any other valuables to higher floors
  • If flooding is expected, consider using sandbags to keep water away from your home. Keep materials like sandbags, plywood, plastic sheeting, and lumber handy for emergency waterproofing.
  • Keep watercourses free of fill/debris. Many people fail to recognize how re-grading their yard, filling a wetland, or discarding leaves or branches in a watercourse can cause a problem for themselves and others.
