What is El Niño and how can it affect the Southeast? El Niño is a periodic climate change in the Pacific Ocean that usually last around (6) six to 18 months. While El Niño begins on the west coast, the risen air allows for a change in air circulation to move across the United States.

According to the National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the upcoming fall and winter months will be cooler and wetter than usual for the Southeast.

With wetter and cooler than average weather coming, homeowners need to be prepared. Improperly waterproofed crawl spaces and basements will be more than likely acceptable to flooding and dampness. Protect your investment before any damages occur. Having a proper waterproofing system installed in your basement and crawl space can give you peace of mind during unexpected weather changes.
