5/16/2023 (Permalink)

Trees are blown sideways during a windstorm. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24 hours a day in Lane County.

Our local South Eugene and Florence team is a trusted leader in storm damage restoration services. For years, Florence families and businesses have relied on us to restore storm damage quickly and efficiently. Windstorms can cause severe damage to properties. Here are some safety tips from the State of Oregon website for things you can do after a windstorm:

  • Check yourself and those around you for injuries
  • Evacuate damaged buildings. Do not re-enter until declared safe by authorities
  • Call 911 only to report a life-threatening emergency
  • If you smell gas or hear a hissing sound indoors, open windows and leave the building. Turn off the gas source and call your gas company. Do not use matches, candles, open flames, or electric switches indoors.
  • If the power goes out, keep refrigerator and freezer doors closed to keep food frozen for up to two days
  • Provide assistance to your neighbors, especially the elderly or disabled
  • Try to make contact with your out-of-area phone contact, but avoid making local telephone calls
  • Monitor your portable or weather radio for instructions or an official "all clear" notice. Radio stations will broadcast what to do, the location of emergency shelters, and medical aid stations, and the extent of the damage.
