Flood Storage

As more residents in our region prepare for rising flood waters, an expert is warning how you pack your belongings could make a difference.

Connie Neal is with the Extension Service in Trenton. She warns against moving your furniture up to the next floor, saying if the ground level is flooded, it will still provide too much moisture in the house. She says storage is the best option with certain conditions.

Neal suggests cleaning your furniture before storage, and keeping appliance doors ajar for ventilation.
