Heavy Rains Bring Rain to the Cincinnati Area
Cincinnati's Channel 5 News, WLWT, reported earlier this week on a mudslide in Bellevue, Kentucky. At Paul Davis of the Tri-State Area, we've seen the effects of the heavy rains in our area recently, but nothing like the landslide that damaged two condominiums in the Rossford Run development.
One of our senior associates, Rick Hatton, was brought in to assess the damage and make plans for restoration of the property. The video from WLWT's report, including the interview with Rick, can be seen here: wlwt.com/news/29935450/detail.html.
We wish the homeowners the best and we want to encourage everyone to be safe and aware of potential landslides on hills around where you live and work. The ground is already saturated and hillsides with steep inclines in your community can be at risk. Check out the USGS for potential landslide warning signs.
The saturated ground around your house can also add pressure to your foundation, resulting in cracks or leaks into your basements. To help keep your basement dry, be sure your sump pump is working effectively and that it has a working battery backup in case the power to your house goes out.
If you have any questions about how to avoid water damage to your home or if you have any questions, please contact us or give us a call at (513) 777-PAUL or (859) 647-PAUL.
