How Georgia Can Prepare for Thunderstorm Season

5/7/2021 (Permalink)

Thunderstorms can pop up at any moment. Contact SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville at 678-376-5515 if you experience any damage.

Did you know that Georgia experiences anywhere from 50 to 55 days of thunderstorms per year, most of which happen in the spring and summer?

As we head into this storm high season, how can you prepare so that you can stay safe the next time one passes through Lawrenceville? A great place to start is knowing the difference between a thunderstorm and a severe thunderstorm.

While every thunderstorm is different, it must have both thunder and lightning to be labeled a thunderstorm.

A severe thunderstorm is defined as a storm that has both thunder and lightning as well as hail and high winds. The hail must be at least one inch or larger and the straight-line winds must be measured at least 58 miles per hour.

The Main Threats These Storms Bring

Lightning strikes. Lightning strikes can be responsible for starting house fires and felling trees that can damage personal property, but they are also capable of inflicting damage on people as well. Did you know that it was recently reported that lighting is noted as causing about 300 injuries every year? Because thunder is a byproduct of lightning, this means that even if you don’t see lightning, if you hear thunder, lightning strikes are a possible threat.

Damage and injury from hail. Hail is capable of doing damage to almost everything it touches. Hail that is one inch or larger can put dents in unsheltered cars, damage roofs and sidings on houses, and cause injury to people, pets and livestock.

High winds. The winds that come in a severe thunderstorm are at least 58 miles per hour. These gusts are capable of turning over trampolines, causing limbs to fall and even flipping over a mobile home. The most important thing to do when preparing for these high winds is to secure all loose items that may do more damage to property.

Flash flooding. Visibility while driving in the rain is already limited, but then add in the prospect of standing water on the roadway and the conditions for drivers can be extremely hazardous. Something like a backed-up storm drain that is not working properly or a small ditch that is overfilled with water, and these conditions can turn into life-threatening situations quickly.

While not all thunderstorms leave behind major destruction, others can do significant damage to businesses and homes. If you are looking for a partner as you recover after a storm, we are on standby. Contact SERVPRO of North Lawrenceville to see how we can help! Call 678-376-5515  24/7
