Facts about storms


About 3,000 hailstorms occur annually in the United States, and hail that develops during severe storms can reach softball size. An average of 1,000 tornadoes a year causes $1.1 billion in property damage, 1,500 injuries and 80 deaths. Tornadoes are nature's most violent storms, and while the vast majority of them are weak and short in duration, they can cause significant damage. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), about 2 percent of tornadoes fall under the most violent classification, meaning they can reach wind speeds of 205 miles per hour or more.

Please make sure to always have plenty of water and some extra flashlights and batteries laying around in case of a rare event like a blackout in the Valley.

Call SERVPRO of Litchfield/West Phoenix, in the event that you do not know what to do. One of our Technicians can guide you through it.
