Mother Nature Damages Businesses

3/1/2022 (Permalink)

The National Centers for Environmental Information  have reported last summer’s storms to have caused billions of dollars in damage. Strong winds, hail, and hurricanes caused most of this damage, and evidence shows we can expect the power and duration to increase, due to global warming.

Storm damages: Destruction from storms is common and an extremely devastating cause of commercial property damage. Powerful storms could cause power outages, break windows, knock down trees, damage inventory or equipment, roofs can be blown off, causing structural damage to an entire building. There is also lighting damages to add to the long list of unexpected havoc from storm damage. All of these weather-related factors range from mild to severe no matter the time of year, but, are especially prevalent during the summer months.

Fire damages: The heat from a lighting strike to your building or nearby area can cause a fire. A single spark between walls or in other places not visible to the naked eye. The ruin that fires cause is quite a particularly challenging type of property damage for any commercial business to sustain. If a fire cannot be controlled and extinguished swiftly, the entire building and all its contents can be at risk. An all-consuming fire can therefore be extremely devastating.
