Types of Storm Damage
Community members throughout Northwest Florida are all too accustomed to hearing Thunderstorm Watches, Tornado Warnings, and High Surf Advisories come across the airwaves, and understand the need to prepare for such incidences. What, though, are some of the most common “storm damages” in our area?
Hurricanes, Tropical Storms, Thunderstorms, and Tornadoes almost always bring along with them high winds. Sustained high winds can lead to serious damages, including downed trees, destroyed roofs, and flying debris that can damage windows. High gusty winds can topple large objects, blow open doors, and destroy the exterior of many structures. These winds can drive water into normally dry areas, leading to flood risks, as well.
Especially along the coastal areas, flooding is an ever-present issue during storms. High surf can push into structures, debris can limit storm runoff, and heavy rains can quickly accumulate causing localized flash flooding. Flood waters often carry debris and contaminants in them, making traveling through them extremely dangerous.
