While the Gulf Coast endures the wrath of hurricane season and wildfires consume lands in the west and northwest, winter storm preparedness may be the furthest thing from your mind. But snowmelt flooding can be just as devastating as the inland flooding brought on by the wrath of Harvey and Irma. And the time to prepare is NOW.
Inflatable bladder dams used for flood protection are in high demand following the recent devastation experienced by Texas, Florida and other regions in the Gulf Coast. At Hydrological Solutions, we are receiving dozens of calls and emails daily with the request to ship our WIPP® system ASAP in anticipation of other hurricanes or tropical storms that may develop over the season. We are working quickly to fill these orders but as a gentle reminder … as much as we would like to, we cannot ship during a major storm! That is why now is the perfect time to think about preparing for the upcoming winter storm season.
The Dangers of Snowmelt Flooding
Movies tend to depict the beauty of snow. Blankets of pure white snow falling on the ground. Kids (and adults!) run outside with huge grins on their face ready to make snow angels, snowmen or participate in winter sports such as sledding and skiing. Couples meeting under the mistletoe with snow falling in their hair… you get the picture.
If you live in an area prone to snow, you know that this is a very small portion of the reality of snowstorms. As the weather gets warmer, these massive amounts of snow begin to melt and the water has to go somewhere! Snow can be dirty and downright dangerous. Snowmelt flooding can quickly submerge your home or business. Winter storm preparedness should begin now to help you keep these investments secure.
Winter Storm Preparedness with WIPP®
As we enter the fall season, soon to be followed by winter, we urge you to think about winter storm preparedness and all that entails. Consider adding the WIPP® to help keep snowmelt flood waters from consuming your property. The WIPP® provides maximum flood protection for residential and commercial properties, reducing the actual damage that can occur during snowmelt flooding.
