“April showers bring the May flowers.”
Are you SERVPRO ready?
While spring is a beautiful time of year, April showers can create flood conditions faster than you may realize. Knowing the difference between a flood warning and flood watch is important. A “Flash Flood Watch,” means there is possible flooding in the Greensboro area. A “Flash Flood Warning,” means flooding is already occurring or will occur soon in the Greensboro area.
