Heavy Winds and Rain Bring Severe Storm Damage!

1/17/2024 (Permalink)

Our area has suffered a few large storms recently, leading to severe flooding in Chester County and the surrounding areas.  During each of these weather events, SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford received an influx of calls for help with water and structural damage due to the heavy rain and downed trees.

During the most recent storm, the wind gusts had reached up to 50 mph, causing trees to collapse onto homes.  Hundreds of power lines were damaged, resulting in fire damage to several properties.  As the heavy downpour gained momentum, properties located closer to creeks and rivers experienced even more storm damage.  In Downingtown, the Brandywine Creek almost reached the peak of a major flood disaster.

In addition, over 60,000 power outages were reported in Chester County alone, while over 221,000 were reported overall from PECO.  During the extreme weather, emergency personnel were called out to sixteen water rescues.  Many vehicles were left trapped in the flooding as the storm continued.

SERVPRO of Kennett Square/Oxford has worked day and night during each of the recent storms to help assist those with extreme storm damage.  Our franchise assists our local customers with the entire storm damage restoration process, including with tarping a damaged roof and the tree removal process.  We provide reconstruction services to the water-damaged areas once mitigation is complete.  In addition, our team will help you to discover the source of any leaks and provide content cleaning for the salvageable items affected.  Often, we can even save some of the water-damaged documents that are not too severely affected.

Should you have suffered any form of storm damage during our region’s storms, feel free to give us a call!  We can help guide you towards the next steps to take in order to get the issue handled immediately!
