Already predictions are being made regarding the 2016 hurricane season. Some of these storms may affect Houma or the surrounding areas.
"The Weather Company, the world's largest private weather enterprise, predicts 14 named storms during the Atlantic hurricane season, which runs June 1 through Nov. 30. Of those, eight will be hurricanes, three of them major -- Category 3 or higher."
That being the case, it is a good idea to take all proper precautions for your home or business. For a homeowner, having adequate and necessary supplies, such as bottled water and food to last out any storms, is a good idea. Of course, it is hopeful that the predictions do not prove true, but being prepared is always a good idea.

If that happens, there needs to be water damage restoration of the home or business. There needs to be water extraction, dehumidification and drying applied to any structures. There might be a need for mold remediation because mold can grow in as little as 48 hours in times of excessive water. Mold definitely contributes to allergies and poor air quality.
