After the Flood—Watch Out for These 7 Hazardous Situations

Whether caused by broken pipes, leaking appliances, or storms, flooding can do serious damage to your home.
If your appliances are plugged in during a flood, the electrical cords or outlets might end up underwater, creating a very dangerous situation that you shouldn’t try to handle on your own.
However, downed trees or large amounts of rain can cause the ground to shift, resulting in misaligned or cracked gas pipes.
Pests Even after the floodwaters are long gone, you could experience a second wave of problems from insects and rodents.
Because insects and rodents spread disease and can do even more damage to your house, it’s best to call an exterminator as soon as you spot them.
Debris Flooding, especially due to severe weather, can create dangerous debris flows.
