You Made It Through A Tornado, But Did Your Home?

6/21/2019 (Permalink)

It can all start with a weather alert on your phone. Then you can see and feel the weather change. The sky can be an eerie greenish black, the wind goes calm and the dramatically shifts direction. You seek shelter and then you hear a loud continuous rumble. The sound that has been described as a jet or a passing train. When the threat has passed and everyone is ok, you can breathe a sigh of relief, but did your home fair as well?


It's a good idea to evaluate your home after the tornado has passed.

According to the National Weather Service after the storm you should assess the damage. They suggest after the threat for tornadoes has ended, check to see if your property has been damaged. When walking through storm damage, wear long pants, a long-sleeved shirt, and sturdy shoes. Contact local authorities if you see power lines down. Stay out of damaged buildings. Be aware of insurance scammers if your property has been damaged.


The best place to start this inspection is the structural integrity of your home. A small tornado can have the power to knock a house off of its foundation, or collapse a load bearing wall or roof, which needs to be repaired before other work can start.
