Record Rainfall Causes Flooded Basements in Omaha, NE
Heavy rains are causing water damage from flooded basements in many parts of the Omaha Metropolitan area. This article in the Omaha World Herald featured our owner, Pat Nosal commenting on the storm event. Over 6 inches of rain has fallen by mid-afternoon on Monday, while the a light rain continued.
Heavy rains frequently cause water seepage into basements, which is not usually covered by standard homeowners insurance. Keep gutters clear and downspouts running away from your foundation to guard against basement flooding.
It is also a good idea to check your foundation for low spots, particularly after a heavy rain. Sometimes, gutters overflow during a heavy rain and cause the ground to sink. These low spots collect rainwater near your foundation and can lead to water seeping into the basement.
