Southern California Flooding
January 25, 2010, Long Beach, CA – An intense series of winter storms brought widespread flooding, huge waves and evacuations throughout Southern California this week. Har-Bro Emergency Services and Restoration has been working around the clock on the more than 150 jobs that were called within the first 72 hours. A flooded senior care center, a roof collapse at a retail store, and flooding at a hospital are just a sampling of the calls that Har-Bro has responded to during this dramatic weather event.
By utilizing multiple resources from their satellite offices and other means, Har-Bro has been able to muster the crews and equipment needed for this significant emergency response.

In addition to the clean up, water extraction and dry-down services necessary, the crews have been providing flooded properties with preventative services such as placement of more than 5000 sand bags, numerous roof cover ups and emergency weather proofing.
