A road is partially flooded by stormwater. We restore storm damage throughout the year in Raleigh County!

Our local team in Beckley is on-call and ready to respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day, 365 days a year in Mullens. West Virginia ranks 5th in the nation for flash floods. In 2020, floods caused over one billion in property and crop damage in the United States. According to the National Weather Service:

  • Most flash floods are caused by slow-moving thunderstorms that repeatedly move over the same area or heavy rains from tropical storms and hurricanes
  • These floods can develop within minutes or hours depending on the intensity and duration of the rain, the topography, soil conditions, and ground cover
  • Flash floods can roll boulders, tear out trees, destroy buildings and bridges, and scour out new channels
  • Flash flooding can trigger catastrophic mudslides

Flood Condition Driving Safety Rules

  • Avoid already flooded and high-velocity flow areas. Do not attempt to cross flowing streams. If you enter a flowing stream and the water gets above your knee, TURN AROUND DON’T DROWN.
  • Do not camp or park your vehicle along streams and washes, particularly during threatening conditions
  • If floodwaters rise around your car, but the water is not moving, abandon the car and move to higher ground. Do not leave the vehicle and enter the moving water.
