Rain in The Valley
The one time we need to be extra cautions, when it comes to rain, is when its won’t stop raining. Born and raised in the valley, I believe we can all agree we tend to experience prolonged and heavy rainfall the most.
Prolonged rainfall is basically continuous rain. Take note, after a long period of rainfall the ground will become saturated and won’t absorb water anymore. Once the ground reaches this point, this tends to lead to a rapid increase surface runoff.
Now when we mention heavy rainfall, we think “well isn’t that the same thing?” In a way yes, with one major exception. Prolonged rainfall will take longer to end up in flood as for heavy rainfalls can fall so rapidly creating a flash flood.
we’ve already began to see more rain, especially this week, in the valley. Being knowledgeable of the rain we’ve been experience can have us prepared on what to except. With us being mid hurricane season its also a good time to go over your insurance coverage. Make sure you’re covered for water damage and flooding or take necessary action to add these to your plan!
