Dangers left behind by Standing Water.

If you know a storm is coming and possibly floods due to a hurricane that is going to hit the eastern coast, everyone begins doing what they can to stop this water from not only flooding their town but also their homes. Sand bags are put out and every just prays that their home is spared. The main problem is that if your home is not spared, you may have a sump pump that remove the water that is in the lower levels of your home, so you can see the damage. The problem is that you may not actually see all the damage that has been left behind. If water stands against the exterior of the home, it can actually cause the dirt under the foundation to move which will allow cracks in the foundation.
