What is the difference between a flash flood watch and a flash flood warning?

When a Flash Flood Watch is issued, there is a possibility of flooding in Austin, TX, and you should prepare accordingly. 

When there is a Flash Flood Warning in effect, flooding is already occurring in Austin, Tx and surrounding areas, and you may have to evacuate if conditions are extreme. 

If you experience flood damage, call SERVPRO of East Central Austin to take care of the damages. Our highly trained crews are working 24/7/365 and are always at your service when you need them the most!

  • Conditions that will activate the plan
  • Chain of command
  • Emergency functions and who will perform them
  • Specific evacuation procedures, including routes and exits
  • Procedures for accounting for personnel, customers and visitors
  • Equipment for personnel
