Take steps now to prevent spring flooding

Email

Most lakes area residents don’t live in flood plains, but basement floods can happen to anyone, and spring may be too late for prevention efforts.

“In the summer of 2012 we did have a number of flood claims that occurred mid-summer. My own house was one of them,” said Chris Hanneken of Hanneken Insurance in Pine River. “In western Cass County, some areas had up to eight inches of rain during that one rainfall. There was too much water in a short period of time.”
