Texas - Thunderstorm & Tornado Central
Texas has the unlucky statistic of being the state with the most thunderstorms, and tornadoes that touch down. With these weather events you may get lightening, high winds, flash floods, and hail. Texas is one of the few ill-fated states to get hail, with Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri being the other targets. For Texans, this can lead not only to property damage to your home and car, but to person loss of life and injury. Here are a couple tips to help when these events occur:
Make sure you have surge protectors linked to all major electronics and appliances.
Think about installing high impact windows and wind shutters.
Consider installing several heavy bolt locks on outside doors.
If you have advanced notice of bad weather coming, either find a place inside for outside items like patio furniture or tie items down. In addition, find a place to park your car inside.
Unfortunately, no matter the preparation, these events will cause damage, we can only hope to minimize it. Please call SERVPRO of Southwest Dallas to help with any of your storm related damage at 214-463-5880.
