Here at Landlord Support Services we are preparing for the storm. Weather forecasters are saying this could be the worst storm since 2008. High winds and rain are expected to begin Wednesday evening and last through Thursday afternoon. Winds out of the south at 30 and 45 mph are expected with gusts up to 60 to 70 mph. Heavy rain is also expected between 2 to 5 inches in the Tehama County Area. Regardless of the severity of a winter storm, being prepared for the storm can save you a lot of discomfort and trouble once the storm hits.
Our property management team is working hard to ensure tenants stay warm and dry. Today we built sandbag barriers around rentals in high risk Red Bluff areas. We take pride in delivering excellent service to our homeowners and tenants.
