For the third time in less than one week, Northern California felt the wrath of an intense storm system. Powerful rains - leading to some minor flooding - drenched some areas with as much as one inch of rain per hour. Trees were also uprooted and electrical lines were knocked loose, putting tens of thousands of residents in the dark, according to officials.
The Associated Press reported that flood warnings were given for the Napa and Russian rivers, two bodies of water north of San Francisco with a history of flooding.
Truckee, a city 30 miles north of Reno, was focused on snow removal, as the town received 4 to 5 inches of snow in the morning, according to assistant city manager Alex Terrazas.
"We continue to keep an eye on the river, but things are certainly better than they could have been," Terrazas told the news source. "We'll transition back to flood management if we need to."
Commercial property insurance is a necessity for all kinds of businesses. Situations - like Mother Nature's wrath - can be highly unpredictable. It's beneficial to be fully prepared for a number of different outcomes. That way, a company will be able to quickly recover when disaster strikes, which can help protect profitability.
All types of businesses and commercial building owners, including apartments, office buildings, hotels and motels, shopping centers and mobile home parks can benefit from commercial property insurance. Working with commercial insurance specialists will guarantee that a company can find a comprehensive policy that best suits its needs.
Anything from heavy rain that leads to serious flooding, or vandalism to the business can be covered. After a thorough assessment of its location and daily business operations, a commercial property owner can make a well-informed decision for his or her insurance needs.
