As the summer season is approaching, so is the risk of storms. Summer storms are dangerous and damaging. We all know the damage and destruction summer storms cause to homes and other buildings.
From broken windows, flooded basements to leaking roofs and whatnot.
You cannot avoid storms or prevent them from coming. However, we can understand the different types of storms to take extra cautious steps this summer.
Let us have a look at some common types of summer storms.
- Hurricanes: Hurricanes are the most common storms experienced in the eastern and southern parts of the world. These storms arise from the Atlantic Ocean and originate in warmer areas. The tropical cyclones, typhoons, or hurricanes grow stronger near the sea surface.
- Hailstorms: We all know the number of damage hailstorms do to the roofs. Hailstorms often cause damage to the roof of our cars and homes. You have to be prepared for hailstorms during the summer season as they can break windows, clog gutters, damage cars, or siding.
- Thunderstorms: Thunderstorms are the most common type of summer storm. People in every state experience thunderstorms, and they cause massive destruction each year. The most vulnerable elements to thunderstorms are chimneys, trees, telephones, and electricity poles. Moreover, things being hit by lightning fall on homes or cars, leading to even more destruction. Thunderstorms are also accompanied by strong winds and rain.
