Hurricane Florence is on its way - and the excessive rains and flooding potential it brings with it can put your drains and pipes at risk. Storm drains work overtime during hurricanes, making it essential to give your pipelines, sewers, and drains some extra attention once the storm has passed.
A Hurricane’s Impact on Your Drains
When a major weather event like hurricane Florence hits, your storm drains and pipes are doing double duty. Not only are they having to handle an excessive amount of water, they’re also dealing with the extra debris that large amounts of runoff wash down. This makes clogged drains very common when Virginia experiences a storm, which can put pressure on your pipes and increases the chance of damage to healthy and weak pipelines alike.
