Storm Runoff Floods Home in Scottsville?

6/6/2023 (Permalink)

Water gushes out of a storm drain, flooding a street. We restore storm damage 24 hours a day in Albermarle County.

Scottsville residents rely on our local Charlottesville team to restore storm damage quickly and efficiently. In 2020, the James River crested, reaching a moderate flood stage, and rescue teams took advantage of the flooding to develop new rescue operations.

If you find yourself in a heavy rain event, there may be flash flooding in creeks and streams that could cause flooding to nearby homes and businesses. Here are some flash flood safety tips from the National Weather Service:

  • During periods of heavy rains, stay away from flood-prone areas such as stream beds, drainage ditches, and culverts
  • Move to higher ground if flooding threatens your area
  • If you live or work in flood-prone areas, remain alert during periods of heavy rain
  • Be especially cautious at night as it is harder to recognize flood dangers
  • Never drive your car into water of unknown depth. Most flash flood deaths occur when people drive their vehicles into flood waters. Remember: Turn Around Don’t Drown!
  • If your vehicle stalls, abandon it immediately and seek higher ground. Flood water may rise quickly, cover the vehicle, and sweep it away.
  • Stay out of flooded areas. The water may still be rising and very swift. A rapidly flowing stream can sweep you off your feet and sweep your vehicle downstream.
