Heavy Rains Cause Flooding in the Omaha Metro
Recent heavy rains led to flooding concerns for many parts of the Omaha Metropolitan area. According to an article in the Omaha World Herald, rainfall totals ranged from 1.26 to over 2 inches around the Omaha area.
Heavy rains frequently cause water seepage into basements, which is not usually covered by standard homeowners insurance. Keep gutters clear and downspouts running away from your foundation to guard against basement flooding.
It is also a good idea to check your foundation for low spots, particularly after a heavy rain. Sometimes, gutters overflow during a heavy rain and cause the ground to sink. These low spots collect rainwater near your foundation and can lead to water seeping into the basement.
