The Danger of Flash Floods

There are a few different types of floods, and one of the most dangerous variations is the flash floods. Flash floods are when there is an overflow of water onto dry land caused by heavy and excessive rain fall in a short period of time. What makes these floods so dangerous is a lot of the time you can’t really prepare for them since they happen on such short notice and the fact that the water usually moves at very high speeds.

Flash floods are the most deadly type of floods, killing more people annually than tornados, hurricanes, and lightning. This video above showcases some examples of flash floods from this past year. The video shows just how dangerous these floods can really be and how they can happen almost out of no where.

The best response to any signs of flash flooding is to move immediately and quickly to higher ground. Cars can be easily be swept away in just 2 feet of moving water. If flood waters rise around a car, it should be abandoned. Passengers should climb to higher ground.

House Elevation

House Lift Video: 17 Feet in 3 Minutes

Planet Three Elevation: P3Elevation condenses 100 days of work into a three minute video

Watch this incredible video footage that condenses 100 days of a house lift elevation project into a tidy three minute video. The house is in Seguin, Texas just outside of San Antonio. Unlike our house lift experience, this house sat on a concrete slab. There were a few other significant differences between this video and our house lift project. First, this house was all one level, making a slab lift an option. Second, and this is a big one, the property in the video was level and large, supplying ample room for trucks and workers to work their magic.

“100 days of work condensed to 3 minutes. We lifted this large 2-story home using unified jacking system. This home and surrounding sidewalks (now decks) has 10 slab segments which rest permanently on steel beams and concrete columns. Note the work precision as the elevation is executed. The Planet Three Elevation team’s experience enables consistency and precision of process execution which enables quality in the finished product.”

No two lift projects are ever the same, but they all offer the same benefit: safety from flooding and peace of mind.
