The NOAA predicts that rainfall could be extremely heavy this year. This could lead to devastating flooding, especially in areas affected by prolonged drought and recent wildfires. The time to get prepared is NOW! The more prepared you are before El Niño arrives the better you and your home can withstand this winter’s El Niño storms. Getting prepared is simple: inspect your home, take the proper actions, and have the right tools on hand.
