Monsoon season can bring damaging winds. This home in Mesa suffered roof damage from flying debris. Our crew not only took care of the water damage in the home caused by the hole in the roof, but also tarped the roof to prevent further damage.
Here Are A Few Safety Tips During Monsoon Season
• Thunderstorm wind gusts in Arizona almost always exceed 40 mph. The strongest straight line wind gusts can exceed 100 mph, and can produce damage similar to a tornado!
• Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage. This includes garbage cans, umbrellas, patio furniture and any other unsecure items around your yard. • Stay away from windows
• Stay away from trees. Many people are killed or injured in severe thunderstorms by falling trees, flying debris, or from downed power lines.
• Never touch a downed power line, even if it appears dead. Assume that it is live. Call for help instead.
• Dust Storms move rapidly and can reduce visibility almost instantly. Dust storms will usually appear well ahead of thunderstorms, be aware of the current weather situation even if you don’t see storms nearby.
• If you encounter a dust storm, pull off the road immediately. Turn off your headlights and taillights, put your vehicle in “PARK,” and take your foot off the brake. Other motorists may tend to follow taillights in an attempt to get through the dust storm, and may strike your vehicle from behind.
• Stay where you are until the dust storm passes.
• Do not go out in a dust storm if you can avoid it.
