7:00 am : The MegaSecur team is there to help. The flooding has begun and even though it has entered the house, it has not reached the access to the basement.
7:30 am : Three (3) 50′ barriers were unrolled and attached together in a dry zone and then pulled around the house with the help of the firefighters. Ballast bags were disposed of along the anti-flood barriers to avoid that the barrier float during the pumping operations.
8:00 am : The pumping begins by means of submersible pumps on house side.
9:00 am : The contour of the house is now dry while the flood water keeps on rising.
The Water-Gate® flood barriers will remain in place several days until the retreat of the flood water.
