  • Thank you for this information. I live in South Jersey and currently battleing a potentional flood in my apartment. The pool right behind my deck and water goes down hill towards me. Town might flood as well and story is 10 hours away for nailing us.

    • Derek,

      You should run to a hardware store and grab some waterproof caulk and seal up your door if you plan on bunkering down for a little while. You could use a window to get in and out of your apartment if needed! Best of luck and wishes to you!

  • Thanks for the reply. Our town is in lockdown, we are not supposed to be on the roads not unless we leaving town for shelter. I just fixed 1 leak in my heater room with a large container for the water dripping. Side ways wind right now is getting water in the vent that travels to my downstairs apartment heater room. My parents live in the woods and preparing for tree’s failing or even on the house. I’ll survive for sure and been using social media to communicate with family and recieve updates locally. Social media is a big help in these bad storm’s. Lights are flickering right now so this will be last time I might go online, might packup laptop stuff or move into the other room.
