JUPITER, FL – March 6, 2013
A severe microburst rainstorm produced flash flooding that ravaged sections of Palm Beach County, Florida in December 2012. The town of Jupiter reported nearly 9 inches of rain in only 30 minutes, and a total of 11 inches of rain in a 3-hour period. The deluge left several communities and homeowners with major water damage as a result, particularly for flooring and walls. In the weeks after the storm, the affected areas have seen increased demand for spray foam insulation to replace water-damaged fiberglass insulation, and SprayFoam.com was on the site of one SPF restoration project.
One particular homeowner in a local oceanfront community suffered nearly two inches of flood water damage in their ground floor as intruding rain water simply filled up their yard, which was enclosed by a privacy wall, and seeped into their home.
