Seeing storm damage coverage after a storm sweeps through an area nearby is always unnerving, because we all know that it could happen to us at any time. Storms are unpredictable, but especially during the hot and muggy summer months.

While we can’t completely prevent home damage, we can still all prepare for the possibility of it so we know what to do if we do suffer damage. Check out our storm damage tips below to learn more. 

Once the Storm is Gone

You are all hunkered down in your safe shelter location and are hearing the sounds of the storm finally start to fade away. The thunder gets less loud, the rain is letting up and the house isn’t creaking and cracking as much.

That might signal you to jump up and assess the damage, but be really careful. Storms often come in waves, so be sure to check the forecast or tune into your radio to make sure the storm is gone before heading outside.

Move about slowly as you assess your property for damage. Structural damage can compromise the safety of your home, so walk slowly and avoid any broken floorboards, damaged walls or broken glass. Take your phone with you while you do your initial assessment just in case you run into any trouble. 

This is also the time to check in with any family members that weren’t home when the storm came through, and you should also check in with your neighbors. Storms can follow very distinct damage patterns and can cause serious damage to one house while leaving the next one untouched.
