Elevating your main breaker and valuables

While major flooding can do tremendous damage, don’t forget that minor flooding can also be a nuisance if the water comes into your home. Keep non-waterproof items at least three inches off the floor so that water seeping in cannot damage them.

Elevate the main breaker or fuse box and the utility meters above the anticipated flood level in your home or business, so that flood water won't damage your utilities.
