Spring Weather Hazards in Louisville, Ohio
Spring brings warmer, longer days and a much anticipated break from winter. However, spring also brings a very real threat of severe weather. Spring weather can be an unpredictable at best, but downright dangerous at worst. When you give some thought to the types of hazards a spring storm could produce, you can better begin to plan for your safety, the safety of your family, as well as your property.
Spring storms can result in:
Water damage: Water damage could happen because of heavy rains that cause flooding, foundation washouts, and sump-pump back-ups.
Fire damage: Fire damage could occur as a result of the use of alternative emergency heat sources, downed power lines, sprinkler systems that fail, or environmental conditions that could lead to structure fires like lightning.
Wind damage: Wind damage from storms can result in fallen trees and limbs, damage to siding and roofs, and potentially downed power lines.
Unfortunately, most of these hazards don't happen alone, for example, tornadoes and thunderstorms can put your property at risk for water, fire, and wind damage. Because spring weather is so unpredictable, you may be unprepared when severe weather hits. So, planning ahead makes sense, prepare for storms, floods, and tornadoes as well as a hazard they can bring.
