We’re in mid storm season and you know what that means. We hear them on the radio, on tv and even our phones send us notifications. I’m talking about WEATHER WATCHES! We all need to familiarize ourselves and educate our children on these terms to be alert in the event we are issued a warning. ESA
Know the lingo!
Flood Watch – this means an overflow of water from a river is possible for the area receiving this alert
Flash Flood Watch- this means that flash flooding is possible or close the area. These can be placed for as long as 12 hours.
Flood Warning- means flooding conditions are actually occurring in the warning area.
FLASH Flood Warning- this means that the flash flooding is ACTUALLY going on in the area. This may also be issued as a result of torrential rains or snow thaw.
In the event you suffer any home damages due to a storm, call SERVPRO Brownsville- SPI. Open 24/7, we can provide more information if needed at 956-747-3020.
