El Niño is expected to bring heavy rainfall this year, which could lead to devastating flooding, especially in areas affected by prolonged drought and recent wildfires.
Don't get caught unprepared this winter. Remember, there is a 30-day waiting period before flood insurance goes into effect so don't wait until it's too late.
You can also take steps now to be prepared like clearing gutters of debris, stocking up on sandbags, and having weakened trees inspected by an arborist.
