SERVPRO of West Brown County offers storm damage restoration

Wisconsin weather can sometimes be unpredictable. Weather in our community can range from a sunny day, to a downpour with heavy winds, to freezing weather and a heavy snowfall. You can go from wearing shorts, to putting on a coat. Since our weather can be unpredictable, it’s important to know what damages severe weather can cause to stay prepared.

What is a thunderstorm?

A thunderstorm is a storm in which you hear lightening. But what is the scientific definition of a thunderstorm? For a thunderstorm to be considered a “thunderstorm” there are three basic things required:

  1. Moisture
  2. Rising unstable air
  3. Lifting mechanism

If you see a thunderstorm approaching, you should immediately seek shelter.

What kind of damage can a thunderstorm cause?

A thunderstorm can cause a lot of damage to communities. Heavy rain, flooding, hail, strong wind gusts and lightening are all potential dangers of a thunderstorm. Rainfall from thunderstorms can cause flash flooding. Flooding can be a hazard to basements if the sump pump suddenly stops working or can’t keep up with the amount of water, thereby flooding a basement. Depending on its size, hail can cause damage to vehicles, homes and even injure animals.  Strong wind gusts can blow debris, topple trees and heavy objects around causing damage to homes and businesses.

Fun fact: Light travels faster than sound so we see lightning before we hear thunder
