  3. Be prepared for power outages and have all cellphones charged
  4. Only use your phone for emergencies 
  5. Stay indoors and away from windows
  6. Check that loose items such as outdoor settings, umbrellas and trampolines are safely secured.

Storms can be a quite scary thing, keeping safe DURING the storm is the most important thing you can do. But AFTER the storm can also be important! Check out some tips we have below:

After The Storm:

  1. Never drive through a flooded roadway.
  2. Stay away from storm-damaged areas to keep from putting yourself at risk from the effects of severe thunderstorms.
  3. Continue to listen to a NOAA Weather Radio or to local radio and television stations for updated information or instructions, as access to roads or some parts of the community may be blocked.
  4. Help people who may require special assistance, such as infants, children and the elderly or those with access or functional needs.
  5. Stay away from downer power lines and report them immediately.
  6. Watch your animals closely. Keep them under your direct control.

Tornado Facts

10/18/2020 (Permalink)

Storm Damage after a Tornado

Tornadoes are arguably nature's most violent storms. Generated from powerful thunderstorms, tornadoes generally appear as rotating, funnel-shaped clouds extending from the cloud base to the ground. With winds that can reach up to 300 miles per hour, tornadoes can cause massive destruction within seconds. Damage paths can be in excess of one mile wide and fifty miles long.

  1. The average tornado moves southwest to northeast, but tornadoes have been known to move in any direction.
  2. The average forward speed of a tornado is 30 miles per hour, but may vary from stationary to 70 miles per hour.
  3. Tornadoes can accompany tropical storms and hurricanes as they move onto land.
  4. Tornadoes are most frequently reported east of the Rocky Mountains during spring and summer months.
  5. Tornadoes are most likely to occur between 3:00pm and 9:00pm.

The top items in an emergency kit should be:

A Clogged Downspout could Cause Flooding!

7/15/2019 (Permalink)

What is a downspout?

A downspout is a pipe that carries rainwater from a roof to the ground. For a downspout to work correctly it must be functioning correctly. Leaves and yard debris can end up causing plugs and clogs in downspouts leading them to back up and not drain as intended. If you see signs of pooling and puddles make sure to clean out and clear out your downspouts to eliminate the blockage and lessen your chances of flooding from rainwater. 

Water damage is not fun, therefore SERVPRO of West Evansville is here to give you tips on how to prevent it from happening at your home or office. If you do experience water or fire damage let us take care of it by calling 812-465-2500.
