ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

MSD recently issued some advice for the public on how to prepare for flooding.

The advice comes shortly before a several day stretch in which heavy rain is predicted, and two months after heavy rains led to flooding.

MSD advises homeowners not to have anything holding up water against the foundation of their home. The agency also wants anyone to be mindful of objects that could block the flow of water from a home. Make sure stairwell drains are clean and check sump pump drainage hoses.

MSD also urges people to limit indoor water used to put less demand on the sewer system.
