Flash Flood Warning Issued for Hollywood?
Last month the National Weather Service issued a flash flood warning for many parts of Broward County, including Pembroke Pines, Hollywood, and Miramar. The NWS warning warned that flash flooding could impact small creeks and streams, urban areas, highways, streets and underpasses, and poor drainage and low-lying areas.
Our local Pembroke Pines and West Miramar teams respond to flood damage emergencies throughout the year and offer these tips from the Federal Emergency Management Agency for preparing for a thunderstorm:
Know Your Risk
Know your area’s risk for thunderstorms. In most places, they can occur year-round and at any hour. Sign up for your community’s warning system. The Emergency Alert System (EAS) and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Weather Radio also provide emergency alerts.
Strengthen Your Home
Cut down or trim trees that may be in danger of falling on your home. Consider buying surge protectors, lightning rods, or a lightning protection system to protect your home, appliances, and electronic devices.
Make an Emergency Plan
Create an emergency plan so that you and your family know what to do, where to go, and what you will need to protect yourselves from the effects of a thunderstorm. Identify sturdy buildings close to where you live, work, study and play.
