Don't let Florida Winters fool you, always be storm ready.
Florida is known for it's sunny weather, and mild winters. Don't let all the snowbirds fool you as they flock south for the winter, Florida is no stranger to winter storm fronts. Due to it's mild temperatures and relative humidity, Florida can experience violent storms as cold fronts move southward towards its sunny beaches. This is evident as a cold front descended towards North Central Florida this morning creating severe thunderstorms and spawning tornado warnings across Suwannee, Columbia and Gilchrist counties that are expected to move south east towards Alachua County throughout the day.
Are you prepared for possible flooding and damaged caused by strong winds and fallen trees? As a home or business owner you can prepare by keeping a watch on your local weather alerts such as the Alachua County alert page at http://www.alachuacounty.us/Depts/EM/Pages/AlertAlachua.aspx. You will also want to keep the phone number of SERVPRO of Alachua County West handy for any storm damage needs that you may have, because we are "Faster to any size disaster."
