Severe Thunderstorm Warnings

During the summer months we often hear of Severe Thunderstorm Warnings in our area. They rend to become common occurrences, just like this summer. When they are issued frequently we tend to pass over them as if they are not extremely dangerous and even deadly.

Severe Thunderstorm Warnings come with the possibility of destructive winds, hail, the possibility of tornadoes and frequent lightning.

The destructive winds during a Severe Thunderstorm Warning may be strong enough to knock down trees and powerlines which pose a great threat to your property. Hail during this time can put dents in your car and ruin the shingles on your roof at the smallest size. As the hail gets bigger you run the risk of broken windows and actual holes in your roof. During this warning in a span of minutes with low-level rotation could form a tornado. As we all know if you can hear thunder you are close enough to get struck by lightning so during a Severe Thunderstorm Warning you should take the proper precautions.

If you experience a loss in your home, please do not hesitate to call SERVPRO® of Charles County and SERVPRO® of Oxon Hill immediately. 301.753.8313.
