El Nino is being anticipated as the largest winter storm that Southern California has ever seen, starting in January 2016. There are a lot of experts who agree that the temperatures of the south Pacific are at levels not seen since the 80’s when El Nino wreaked havoc in SoCal causing nearly a billion dollars worth of business. To prepare for the storm, companies like http://www.pacificcoastcorporate.com/ out of Carlsbad CA are ramping up their crews and getting ready with equipment and supplies to deal with the waterproofing and restoration projects that are bound to come up in the next few months.
To be sure, this is the kind of storm that will saturate a very dry land, already in drought. When in drought, the ground is very hard and water sits on top until the first few rains soften the crust of the earth around the areas hardest hit. What that means is that there will be much flooding at the onset of the storms. And what that means for homeowners and businesses all throughout the region is that there could potentially be catastrophic damages that range in the billions of dollars once again. Good news, however, for waterproofing and construction companies in the area.
Pacific Coast Corporate’s CEO Jim says that “it’s a good idea for people to prepare for the storms long before they arrive. It’s good to get supplies before they’re scarce and before the rush.” The kinds of supplies that the average homeowner might need? Here’s a good checklist:
- Wood to block windows in high winds
- Plastic rolls
- Large fans (to dry carpet fast)
- Extra dry foods
- Canned foods
These are just a few things you can pick up in advance to safeguard your home and family from the impending disastrous storms. Hope this helps, now go get your supplies.
