Florida Tornadoes

7/10/2020 (Permalink)

The after effects of a Florida Tornado which caused water damage to the ceiling and personal belongings.

The mere mention of the word tornado and fear is immediately invoked in people, especially if you live in areas where they occur. Florida is no exception. While our tornadoes are not as destructive as those in the mid-west, the damage they cause can be just as devastating.

The general warnings to be safe during a tornado is to go the basement, avoid windows, get under something sturdy and do not stay in a mobile home. As Floridians we are at a great disadvantage. Our homes are not built with basements, our windows tend to be plentiful and mobile homes are a part of our landscape. The only protection we have is to find something sturdy to get beneath. That being said, we are almost left unprotected. When roofs tear apart during the violent winds and rain enters the home we become vulnerable.  

It is for this very reason we at SERVPRO of South Orange County advise our customers to always be prepared and vigilant. We encourage having proper documentation of all belongings, verifying coverage with insurance carriers and most of all having easy access our phone number.
