Hurricane Sally leaves the Florida panhandle with severe flooding and water damages throughout the Pensacola area. As of Thursday afternoon, thousands of Florida residents were without power. Our storm crews saw how much devastation the hurricane left behind. One bridge in Pensacola, Florida, is missing two large sections, likely because barges came loose and smashed into it. Roofs have been peeled away, boats are scattered, and some areas are cut off by downed trees or heavy flooding. SERVPRO of Lake County Florida sent our general manager and crew to help the storm team. They were very surprised on how devastating the hurricane storms can be. What a trying time it is for the residents of Pensacola and surrounding areas. We are glad we were able to help out.

Rain intrusion During a Thunder storm
When we say storm around here, it's easy to imagine hurricanes, tornadoes, and snow storms. But our crews also respond to damage sustained during a thunderstorm much like the one we experienced in Lake County last night. We had a previous customer call us to come out when she discovered the repair she thought was complete had failed in the middle of the storm. The affected area we had dried last weekend was saturated again. The on call tech headed out and was able to limit any further damage by extracting water and placing drying equipment. Our customer was incredibly pleased with our quick response which saved her home and belongings from any further damage. We were happy to help! If you experience a loss due to rainwater, please give us a call.

While some Texans have begun to wade through the cost of home repairs, others are still displaced having fled to hotels to escape darkened or cold houses. Most said they are grateful to have found accommodations in quickly filling hotels, but were concerned about the accumulating expenses. The financial worries come about a year after the start of a global pandemic that decimated many people’s incomes and claimed thousands of jobs. The storm has also displaced worries about maintaining social distancing for some desperate to find a place with heating or power. In Houston, a family were able to find a room at a Hampton Inn, costing $140 a night, after the temperature in their home started dropping. They grabbed meals from from where ever they could and found a few restaurants that were open for takeout. They were hoping the power would come back on soon so that their pipes would not burst from the freezing temperatures. They were not so lucky, when they went to check on their home they found water everywhere from broken pipes.
