Spring Can Deliver Severe Weather Surprises
Spring brings warmer weather, longer days, and a much-anticipated break from winter. But, it also brings a very real threat of severe weather.
Spring weather can be unpredictable at best and downright dangerous at worst. When you give some thought to the types of hazards a spring storm could produce, you can begin to plan for the safety of your family as well as your home or business.
Here are some of the ways a spring storm might damage your home or business:
1. Water damage caused by foundation washouts from storms, sump pumps that fail during power outages, torrential downpours, or faulty air conditioning condensation lines during a heatwave.
2. Fire damage caused by the use of alternate emergency heat sources, sprinkler systems that fail, downed power lines, or environmental conditions leading to structure fires.
3. Wind damage caused by fallen trees and limbs, damage to siding and roofs, and downed power lines. Of course, most of these hazards don’t happen alone. For example, tornadoes and thunderstorms put property owners at risk for water, fire, and wind damage. It’s important to understand which hazards might affect your property and your family, and then take the proper steps to prepare.
