Here are four of the most common autumn weather threats:

In the following blog post, we will be going over what damages each weather condition can cause and how SERVPRO of Union, Towns, Fannin & Gilmer Counties can help.

What is autumn storm damage?

Autumn storm damage is any damage that is caused by autumn weather conditions. The best way to protect your home or property from autumn storm damage is to be aware of the threats and take the necessary precautions. Here is a list of the four most common autumn weather threats and the damages they can cause: 

1) What damages can high winds cause?

High winds can cause severe property damage by blowing objects around or even lifting them and carrying them away. They can also knock down trees and power lines, causing power outages. 

2) What damages can heavy rains cause?

Heavy rains can lead to flash flooding when water accumulates rapidly and causes sudden flooding in areas that are generally not prone to it. Flash flooding can be hazardous and will leave a property with water damage. 

3) What damages can cold fronts cause?

A cold front is a weather system that brings a sudden drop in temperature and is often accompanied by rain or snow. Cold fronts can cause power outages and pipe bursts from the extreme influx in temperature. 

4) What damages can snowfall cause?

Snowfall can cause several types of damage, including roof collapses, downed power lines, and slippery conditions.

How can you protect your home and property from autumn storm damage? 

Now that you know the four most common autumn weather threats and the damages they can cause, it's time to learn how you can protect your property from them. Here are some of the most important tips to remember this autumn season:

  • Have a disaster preparedness plan. This plan should include a list of emergency contact numbers, evacuation routes, and a safe place to go if you need to evacuate.
  • Make sure your home is properly insured. Autumn storm damage can be very costly, so it is essential to have insurance coverage in case of a storm.
  • Keep an eye on the weather forecast and be prepared for severe weather conditions. Make sure you have plenty of food, water, and other supplies if you lose power or must evacuate.
  • Clean up any debris or branches that could cause problems during a storm. Clogged gutters are a real issue, so it is essential to ensure your gutters are clear and free of leaves so water can flow away from your home.
  • Stay safe during a storm! Do not try to leave your home during high winds or heavy rains, and stay away from downed power lines.
