Torrential downpours, flooding, funnel clouds and hail shut down power for thousands of customers in the Caldwell County, North Carolina area on Thursday, May 26, late in the afternoon, according to Fox46 News. Schools were closed or had delayed openings as the storms rolled through the night into Friday morning.

There was a report of a tornado on the ground, near Love Valley in nearby Iredell County and quarter-size hail in Caldwell County, as well as Cherokee, Cleveland, Burke, Wilkes, Catawba, and Iredell Counties.

This storm was almost as bad as the one that hit a little further east in the Maryland-Delaware area 10 days ago, on May 16th. The residents in that area had never seen hail as big as they did on that day.

Large hail driven against roofs and sidings, by high winds, can cause severe damage, which will let in water during heavy rainfall that occurred in this storm. Water damage brings in molds and mildews, as well as weakens building structures. RestoreMasters is in the Caldwell County area to assist with emergency repairs, providing coverings for roofs by shrink wrapping or using tarp.

The local hail and wind map shows heavy wind (gray) adjacent to the hail storm, that dropped 1” hail (yellow). The southern area of the hail storm brought golf-ball-sized hail (orange).

RestoreMasters encourages property owners to be very careful when inspecting or cleaning up buildings after heavy storms, especially if there has been flooding or heavy water damage. It does not take long for black mold to begin, especially in warm, damp weather. Be sure to wear proper PPE to reduce exposure to unhealthy molds and mildews. RestoreMasters has expertise in clean up of this type as well as temporary and permanent repairs and restorations.

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage. Winds as low as 50 mph can cause some older roofs to be damaged. The intensity of roof damage is determined by various factors: the velocity and impact of flying debris, the quality of the original installation, the building height and location in relation to other buildings, the angle and shape of the roof, and the material used on the roof.

Getting a roof inspection & property damage assessment after severe weather like this is important for determining whether you need to address roof damage from hail or high winds. If roof leaks do occur, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can stop leaks with tarping or shrink wrapping, where affected areas (or the entire roof) are covered with a durable shrink-wrapped plastic membrane till permanent repairs can take place. That way you can prevent mold growth from water intrusion.
If your property was anywhere within the storm damage map, it would be best to get your roof inspected, even if you think your roof was not damaged. Some storm damage symptoms take time to appear. And deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
