Flash Flooding and Mudslides in Charlottesville?

5/17/2022 (Permalink)

A road closed sign is shown. We are on call 24-hours a day to respond to storm damage emergencies in Albemarle County.

In May of 2018, heavy rain fell over Charlottesville and surrounding towns, dumping ten inches of rain in a couple of hours. This brought flash flooding and mudslides and caused roads to be closed. Our team in Charlottesville responds to storm damage 24-hours a day. We have the equipment and experience necessary to quickly extract water and thoroughly dry areas compromised by water. Here are some tips from Federal Emergency Management Agency on things you can do to stay safe during a flood:

  • If told to evacuate, evacuate immediately. Never drive around barricades. Local responders use them to safely direct traffic out of flooded areas.
  • Contact your health provider if you are sick and need medical attention. Wait for further care instructions and shelter in place, if possible. Call 9-1-1 if you have a medical emergency.
  • Listen to EAS, NOAA Weather Radio, or local alerting systems for current information and instructions regarding flooding
  • Get to the highest level if trapped in a building. Do not climb into a closed attic space and only get on the roof if necessary and once there is a signal for help.
  • Stay off bridges and out of fast-moving water. Turn Around. Don’t Drown!
  • Say inside your car if it is trapped in rapidly moving water. Get on the roof if water is rising inside the vehicle.
