A flood can cause physical hazards and emotional stress. You need to look after yourself and your family as you focus on cleanup and repair.
  • Avoid floodwaters; water may be contaminated by oil, gasoline or raw sewage.
  • Service damaged septic tanks, cesspools, pits and leaking systems as soon as possible. Damaged sewer systems are serious health hazards.
