What to do in a severe storm/tornado?
Southeast Iowa lies in tornado alley, so I'm sure we are all too familiar with the sounds of tornado sirens. Tornadoes are caused when hot and cold temperatures meet, and Iowa's hot/humid climate is the perfect recipe for a strong storm or tornado. Like any typical Midwest summer, we have recently had several severe storms come through our area, inevitably causing some damage in its path. Heavy storms can bring dangerous winds, flash flooding, and downed power lines or trees. SERVPRO is equipped with trained technicians and proper equipment to handle these situations. If you find yourself in the midst of a storm, take the appropriate actions to ensure you and your family are safe. After the storm has passed, assess your home and property. Storm damage can be devastating, but SERVPRO is here 24 hours a day if you need help.
