Question #1: What are the most common types of storms in Georgia?
Georgians are lucky, we live in a mild climate. Typically the types of storms that cause damage include thunderstorms, high winds, lightning, and freezing rain and ice storms.
Question #2: What is the most common type of damage that results from each of these types of storms?
Here is a breakdown of the common types of damage caused by different types of storms:
- Thunderstorms: The deluge of rain from thunderstorms can cause flooding, water damage, broken gutters and downspouts, landscape damage, and foundation damage.
- High Wind: Extreme wind can lift shingles, pull off shutters, dislodge siding, damage lawn and garden furniture, break tree branches, and even uproot landscaping.
- Lightning: The main damage from lightning is fire. When lightning strikes a home it can cause a fire directly or it can heat an object up to the point of starting a fire. Lightning can also cause damage to the electrical wiring in your home, depending on where it hits your house. The most common lightning strikes are to trees, and if a tree is broken from the strike, that broken limb can do a lot of damage depending on what it falls on.
- Freezing Rain and Ice: The most common damage caused by freezing rain and ice is broken tree limbs and downed power lines. Ice is so heavy that when it accumulates as little as half an inch it can easily break huge tree branches and pull down power lines causing widespread power outages.
