Types of Storm Damage in Vermont
SERVPRO of Bennington & Rutland Counties customers are in an area where they could experience the following types of storm related damage:
There are two chances of getting hit by a hurricane in Vermont: Fat and Slim. But storms are getting stronger and more frequent (and the hurricane center is tracking them better). Hurricanes can and do cause problems and property damage in Vermont. They can wash away your driveway and flood your basement.
Local residents do not normally experience tornadoes, but it is possible to have tornado anywhere. The tornadoes experienced locally are usually small and only last for short times. The damage they can do during that time is extensive.
Flooding is a concern in and around Vermont, especially after heavy rainfall or storm activity.
Hail damage can occur at any time. Hail is formed by strong rising air currents that carry the rain drops high enough for them to freeze into ice balls before falling as rain. Hail can range in size from the size of a normal rain drop to softball and even larger sized hail.
Lightning can strike a property during a storm causing the structure to catch on fire. When this happens wiring is often burnt and systems within the home may fail. It is important to call emergency services immediately to put out any fire caused by a lightning strike.
