Tornado Hits Dallas, TX

Storm Damage This is a before photo of one of the damaged bathrooms caused by the tornado.

Ten tornadoes rolled through the heart of Dallas on Sunday, November 20th around 10pm.  Wreaking havoc on homes, stores, restaurants, churches, office buildings, and schools, thousands of people were left in shock and awe at the devastation on Monday morning.  

Many students stayed home from school that  Monday, and many days after that, due to extensive damage to their buildings.  One small private school was in the direct line of one of the tornadoes that night and had extensive damage.  SERVPRO of East Dallas was called that morning to come in and assess the damage and start the drying and clean up process.  Our team was there within minutes extracting water, placing dehumidifiers, and cleaning up debris.  Over the next week the halls and classrooms were dry, debris from damaged ceilings and walls were cleaned up, and the staff was able to get back in the building safely. 

This small school has a long road ahead with the rebuild but we are thankful we were able to help alleviate some of the initial stress of such a devastating situation.  

Storm Readiness - Make an Emergency Kit!

red emergency kit Emergencies happen. Prepare for them before they occur.

This hurricane season has been a doozy. There are currently six tropical storms swirling around in the Pacific and Atlantic oceans.
Within the last month, Hurricane Dorian nearly obliterated the Bahamas, and Tropical Storm Imelda wreaked havoc on both Texas and Louisiana.

There is nothing we can do to prevent storms from happening. However, we can take precautions and do what we can in order to be prepared in the event a storm or disaster strikes our area. 

In the "Build a Kit" section of their website, ready.gov offers a list of suggestions of items to have prepared in case of a general disaster.

Sealing all the items you assemble in airtight plastic bags keeps them safe from water, and having a way to easily carry around your supplies is helpful in the event that you need to move from your location. 

Some suggested items to include in your emergency kit are: water, non-perishable food, batteries, a map of your local area, a NOAA weather radio, a first aid kit, and a flashlight. There are additional items that you can consider, and some that will depend specifically on the needs of your family (Do you have pets? Do any of your relatives require medication? Are there babies who require formula? etc).
