Has Your Home Suffered Damage in the Recent Midwestern Flooding?

As both residents and companies continue to deal with the implications of flooding in the Midwest, it should come as no surprise that there are all kinds of collaborative efforts going on. For instance, one data center’s recovery center was used by the American Red Cross for a single day flood relief fund raising event. The donation of the work group’s recovery facility was only possible because a major food retailer in the area connected the data center with the Red Cross. The governor and congressmen, as well as senators and the mayor were involved in this technology marriage that united a well prepared space technical space with a with a well known fund raising group that is trying to help thousands find the resources they need to recover from the worst flooding events in half a century.

When most of us think about the flood recovery efforts that are going on in the states of Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and the Dakotas we often consider the purchase or rental of water pumps. And while the temporary sump and water pump rentals provide important help to many home and business owners, there are also many other kinds of help going on behind the scenes as well.

Flooding Victims Rely on a Number of Agencies and Individuals for a Successful Recovery
If it takes a village to raise a child, it definitely takes a village and more to survive a natural disaster like a flood. Sewage pump rentals are essential, but so are reliable communication systems. Basement cleaning and abatement services are very important, but so are the funds that are raised from across the country and around the world. Since the year 2010, floods have cost America almost $40 billion, but that number will be significantly higher with the latest devastation in the midwest.

Even more daunting is the fact that statistics from the United States Army Corps of Engineers indicate that as many as 100 million to many hundreds of millions of individuals in cities will likely experience flooding within a generation. All of these people will need to rely not only on the water pumping industry, but also the generosity and collaboration of tech companies and world wide fund raising groups.
