Tornado Warning Signs

Damage after a tornado Damage after a tornado

On April 13, 2022 an EF1 tornado hit several different areas of Jefferson & Bullitt Counties in Kentucky. A lot of homes sustained wind, rain, & hail damage and SERVPRO of Bullitt & N. Nelson Counties was there to help with the clean-up and repairs. Thankfully there were no serious injuries reported and that is probably due in part to our local weather men & women alerting us to take cover. What if you don't have any power though & you have no way to know when to take cover? Below are six signs to look out for when possible tornadoes are approaching. 

  1. The color of the sky may change to a dark greenish color.
  2. A strange quiet occurring within or shortly after a thunderstorm.
  3. A loud roar that sounds similar to a freight train.
  4. An approaching cloud of debris, especially at ground level.
  5. You can see debris falling from the sky.
  6. A rotating funnel-shaped cloud that extends from a thunderstorm.

If you notice any of these signs it is time to take cover in an interior room, preferably a room without windows, and shelter in place until the tornado has passed. 

At SERVPRO of Bullitt & N. Nelson Counties, our main goal is for our community to stay safe, however if your home does sustain damage of any kind we are here to offer a helping hand.
