SERVPRO® of Northwest Lake County knows that strong winds can cause property damage. Thunderstorms can cause high winds, and they can turn into tornadoes. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration offer this information on the classification of wind and wind alerts:
High Wind Warning: Take Action! Sustained, strong winds with even stronger gusts are happening. Seek shelter. If you are driving, keep both hands on the wheel.
High Wind Watch: Be Prepared! Sustained, strong winds are possible. Secure loose items and adjust plans as necessary so you are not caught outside.
Wind Advisory: Take Action: Strong winds are occurring but are not so strong to warrant a High Wind Warning. Objects that are outdoors should be secured, and caution should be taken if driving.
