Emergency Roofing in Coweta, Oklahoma Following Tornado Wind Damage on October 10, 2021
Commercial Roofing & Restoration
Several tornadoes touched down in the state of Oklahoma Sunday night October 10, 2021 that (combined with widespread hail and rain) caused damage to roofing systems, buildings, cars and structures. The Coweta tornado came on the heels of massive hail that blew holes through car windows in Norman, Oklahoma.
Coweta sits southeast of Tulsa and is familiar with its share of severe weather events. But this storm ripped through town and caused such damage that classes were cancelled at Coweta Public Schools. RestoreMasters maintains a roofing and restoration office in Tulsa for disasters like this and quickly deployed emergency roofing crews to help seal up properties.
The National Weather Service confirmed the Coweta tornado was an EF-1 storm.
Following severe wind events, it's important to check your roof for wind damage. While your roof may not have obvious damage, a close inspection by professionals might reveal lifted shingles or separated membrane (as in the case of TPO or EPDM). In response to this tornado, our team recommends property owners perform a visual inspection and call in a professional if you worry about roof wind damage.
According to the National Weather Service, the following communities and counties were also affected by tornadoes or showed tornado debris signature on radar on Sunday:
- 4 Miles south of Cooperton in Kiowa county
- 4 Miles south southwest of Anadarko in Caddo county
- 2 Miles south of Verden in Grady county
- 4 Miles north of Harrah in Oklahoma county
- 1 Mile west of Warwick in Lincoln county
- 4 Miles southeast of McLoud in Pottawatomie county
- Johnson in Pottawatomie county
- 2 Miles west of Ada in Pontotoc county
- 1 Mile south of Beggs in Okmulgee county
- Coweta in Wagoner county
- 2 Miles northwest of Webbers Falls in Muskogee county
- 7 Miles south southwest of Jay in Delaware county
In addition to roof damage from hail, strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage. Some older roofs can be damaged by winds as low as 50 miles per hour. The severity of roof damage depends on several factors including: type and age of roofing materials, presence of flying debris, roof shape and angle, building height and proximity to adjacent structures and the quality of original roof installation.
Following severe weather like this, it's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment to determine whether or not you have roof damage from hail or wind. 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) is covered with a durable shrink wrapped plastic membrane till permanent repairs can take place.
Even if you don't think your roof was damaged, you will want to get your roof inspected if your property falls anywhere within the hail damage map. Some storm damage problems do not produce symptoms right away. And insurance company deadlines could hinder your ability to file a claim later.
