Types of Storms & What to Expect

Storms come at anytime and are one of the few things that are completely out of your control. SERVPRO of Fredericksburg will do their best in helping with the aftermath and damages.  However, it is good to know what to expect from different types of storms. 

  • Hail Storms
    • Hail storms affect the exterior of homes greatly. You can expect damage done to roofing, windows, vehicles, doors, lawn items and equipment, and any other outdoor dwelling.
  • Thunderstorms
    • Thunderstorms happen all the time, in any area across the country. They can be minor or major.  Major thunderstorms can cause power outages, fallen trees, flooding indoors and outdoor and more.  See our other blog regarding Thunderstorms for more information. 
  • Ice Storms
    • Ice storms can be very dangerous. Driving conditions can be impossible during and after ice storms.  Expect fallen trees, telephone poles and wires.  Expect very hazardous conditions.
  • Tornadoes
    • Tornadoes are devastating at times and hard to predict. The high winds damage anything and everything in its path.  You can expect long term power outages, fallen trees, serious indoor and outdoor damage, and lots of debris.  
  • Lightning storms
    • Lighting is deadly when struck.  It is important to stay indoors with no water running. You can expect fallen trees, power lines, and fires during a lightning storm.
  • Blizzards
    • Blizzards bring heavy snow. Do expect power outages, but also expect to be ‘snowed in’ for quite some time.  You will want to be prepared with food, water, and essentials before a blizzard hits as it makes driving conditions hazardous. 
  • Floods
    • Floods cause major water damage. Homes can be destroyed by flooding and long term standing water.  You can expect water damage to indoor and outdoor items along with vehicles.
  • Hurricanes/ Tropical Storms
    • Hurricanes and Tropical Storms can also cause major water damage to homes and vehicles. You can expect debris, water damage, long term power outages and standing water.  See our other blog regarding Hurricanes and Tropical Storms for more information.
