Tornado Warning!

6/23/2019 (Permalink)

Contact SERVPRO® of Panthersville at (678) 515-8602 if you encounter tornado damages.

Although tornadoes can strike instantaneously, there are certain precautions and preventative measures that one can take to increase the chances of surviving tornadoes. When a warning is issued, going to a basement or an interior first-floor room of a sturdy building significantly increases the chances of survival. Many buildings have storm cellars on the properties in the areas that are prone to tornadoes.

It is often thought that opening windows will reduce the damages caused by tornadoes. Opening windows may actually increase the severity of the tornado's damage. A violent tornado can destroy a house whether its windows are open or closed.

Contact your Local Emergency Management Agency to learn how your community sends warnings. Some communities use sirens, others use a mass notification system, while others depend on the media to alert residents of severe storms. Ensure that you have multiple ways to receive warnings.
