Spring Storms

Storms in the sky This image shows lightening and storms.

It’s been a beautiful spring day. The temperature is warm, the sun is shining and you’re thinking the weather forecast is once again wrong.  That’s when the temperature suddenly drops and the clouds on the horizon turn ominous. It’s time to get in the house and take shelter. These sudden spring storms often have high damaging winds, heavy rainfall and sometimes spawn tornadoes. Having a storm readiness plan and getting yourself and your family to a safe location is the most important thing you can do. An interior room in the basement away from any windows, if there is no basement then a closet or a bathroom away from exterior walls will offer some protection. Having a go bag is very important, follow this link to a list recommended items by Ready.Gov https://www.ready.gov/sites/default/files/2021-02/ready_checklist.pdf  

The storm has passed, you’re all safe but your house has suffered some damage and now they are predicting more storms for tomorrow. Part of your roof has been damaged and is leaking, the 2nd story carpets are soaked. Right now, the water damage is contained on the second floor but for how long? You need to get your roof secured before the next storm and the water extracted from the carpets before any other damage occurs. WHO DO YOU CALL?
