Midwest Tornado & Flood
Living in the Midwest, you don't hear of many tornadoes coming through the area. If they do, they are mostly more south and don't cause much damage. However, disaster struck two of our suburbs in the middle of the night. The only time we usually hear the tornado sirens go off is when the first Tuesday of the month comes around. However, this was not the case this time. Once the morning hit, we where all able to see the disaster that the tornado has caused to residential homes. There where trees in homeowner's yards that where not there's, trampolines through the side of homes, cars completely smashed, and even an entire home was destroyed. We here at SERVPRO knew that the community needed our help. We immediately stationed our crew in two suburbs that where affected the most, and just handed out water and snacks to anyone that was in need of them. We could see the devastation on people's faces, and all we wanted to do was help as much as we could.
Following the tornado that hit, we then received major flood warnings for almost two weeks. On top of all the homes having property damage to them, they where now dealing with heavy rain fall coming into their homes. This is where our storm team kicked it into gear. Our crew is working around the clock to help restore people's homes, and to give them guidance on what the next step is to take because of these disasters. We can't be more proud to help support our communities during this time. This is why we stand by our saying of being "Faster to Any Size Disaster".
