Be Prepared for Storms
Be prepared for when storms strike.
If you have lived in central Texas long, you are aware that the weather can be extraordinarily temperamental. Though spring is most commonly when severe weather is expected, thunderstorms can just as easily strike in summer.
While it may be difficult to prepare for the unpredictable, there are steps you can take now to help ensure that you are ready when disaster strikes.
Preparing an emergency supply kit, and storing it in a designated shelter area of your home (usually the innermost room or closet, furthest away from the exterior walls and windows) is a great way to be prepared; Add some spare batteries, along with your NOAA Weather Radio, and water enough for the members of your family. Ensure that everyone in the household knows the particulars of your emergency readiness plan, should severe storms strike.
If damage to your home should occur, SERVPRO of Pflugerville is ready to help you set it right again.
Before, During, & After a Storm
Keep these things in mind when prepping for, going through, or after a storm.
As your local restoration company, SERVPRO of Pflugerville is here to help you make storm damage "Like it never even happened."
Here are some tips for before, during, and after a storm:
BEFORE THE STORM
- Build an emergency supply kit and develop a communication plan.
- Unplug any electronic equipment before the storm arrives.
- Secure outdoor objects that could blow away or cause damage.
- If you are outdoors, get inside a building, home or hard top vehicle (not a convertible).
- Shutter windows and secure outside doors. If shutters are not available, close window blinds, shades or curtains.
DURING THE STORM
- Use your battery-operated NOAA Weather Radio for updates from local officials.
- Avoid contact with corded phones. Cordless and cellular phones are safe to use.
- Unplug appliances and other electrical items, such as computers. Power surges from lightning can cause serious damage.
- Avoid contact with electrical equipment or cords.
- Avoid contact with plumbing. Plumbing and bathroom fixtures can conduct electricity.
- Stay away from windows and doors.
AFTER THE STORM
- Never drive through a flooded roadway.
- Stay away from storm-damaged areas to keep from putting yourself at risk.
- Stay away from downed power lines and report them immediately.
Follow this advice, and heed the warnings from your local news and weather channels to keep your property and loved ones safe through to the other side of the storms.

SERVPRO of Pflugerville responded to a commercial water loss in Corpus Christi, Texas. An apartment complex there suffered substantial wind and water damage, resulting in damaged roofs, and even some of the brick walls collapsing. We were able to respond the next day, and began to provide emergency water mitigation services, as well as supplemental power so that the apartments could continue to operate and care for their tenants.
It is a mission we don't take lightly, to help folks impacted by storm damage regain a sense of safety and normalcy.
