Commercial buildings, like any property, are subject to costly weather-related damage. Depending on the season and location, losses can be caused by tornadoes, blizzards, earthquakes, and hurricanes. But maybe one of the more common weather disasters is storms. In addition to hail, heavy winds, and lightning strikes, when the rain starts to fall, often times flooding is of biggest concern.
There are very few areas in the world where flooding is not a potential risk. In the United States alone, floods account annually for nearly $6 billion in damage and 140 deaths, according to National Geographic. If you’re in a location where rain falls, with little to no warning a flood can take place, leaving a wake of destruction in its path. While some floods happen over hours or days, flash floods can happen quite quickly, becoming dangerous in no time.
Flooding may affect your commercial property by way of rising river beds, tropical storms, heavy surface rainfall, or excessive rainfall in a short period of time, to name a few. As a property owner or manager, your disaster preparedness plan should address flood concerns. While you may not be able to stop the rain from falling, you can take efforts to keep your commercial buildings safe from impending damage.
