Flooding in Canton, Ohio?
Are you ready for when the heavy rains come?
Many times, throughout the year a flash flood watch or waring has been issued by the National Weather Service in Stark County, Ohio. A flash flood is extremely heavy rainfall from thunderstorms. When significant rainfall happens, it can produce 3-5 inches of water in a short amount of time. When that amount of rain falls water begins to rise in rivers and streams and widespread flooding can occur. Flash flooding occurs very quickly and can happen anywhere. People are usually caught off-guard and in certain areas the situation may become dangerous if they encounter high, fast moving water while traveling. If people are at their homes or businesses, the water may rise quickly and trap them. It can also cause damage to the property without having a chance to protect their property. If your property does require storm damage restoration due to flooding, call SERVPRO of Northwest Stark County for 24 Hour emergency services.
