Apr 14, 2022

Residents of Central Mississippi ended their workday on Wednesday, April 13th, with high winds and tornadoes that caused damage to roofs, along with damaged siding on homes and commercial buildings. Many trees were uprooted, felled or snapped and thrown onto roads, highways and buildings. Utility poles were twisted, or snapped. Tornadoes dropped and sped through communities across Mississippi with focused destruction over Jackson and areas around Jackson. One tornado ran through a forested area to the west of Jackson. Others carved paths east of Jackson.

In Alcorn County, structures were damaged by an EF-0 tornado that touched down with maximum estimated wind speed of 80 mph. Unfortunately, in Olive Branch, people were trapped in a house after a tree fell on it. Injuries are unknown at this time. High winds caused roof damage to several commercial buildings and a gas station awning was destroyed. A home in Ashland had a tree fall on it, damaging the roof. Basic City had suspected tornadic activity, with structural damage along CR 350. A wall collapsed in Jonestown, with the high winds blowing brick debris 30-40 feet into the street. Crystal Springs saw wind gusts of 60 to 70 mph.

Eudora homes were damaged by trees falling on them. In Cross Roads, a tin roof was peeled off a shed. And significant roof damage occurred in Hernando. Overall, damage was significant to many buildings of all types. And RestoreMasters has been there helping home owners, business owners and property managers, with damage assessment, insurance reports and getting the buildings and structures back to pre-storm condition.

Reports abound of tornado and high wind damage all throughout central and Midwest states. This storm is part of the same system that brought havoc to the Louisville, Kentucky area. From the wind storm weather map, the large gray areas indicate winds from 58 – 73 mph. Smaller dark blue areas indicate winds from 74 – 95 mph with the black streaks throughout indicating tornadoes.

Uprooted or fallen trees, flying branches and debris can cause untold damage to house and building siding, roofing systems, doors, windows, and decks. RestoreMasters has the know-how to secure a damaged building until more permanent solutions can be accomplished. The team also helps homeowners and building managers deal with insurance claims and final restoration and repairs.

Tornadoes, hail, and even strong winds can cause severe wind damage to roofing systems.

Some older roofs can be damaged by winds as low as 50 miles per hour.

Several factors will determine the severity of roof damage: the height of the building and proximity to nearby structures, the quality of work by the original installers, the shape and angle of the roof, the age and type of roofing materials, and the impact from debris.

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.

Circumstances do not always allow for immediate repair of roof leaks. In the meantime, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can cover the roof or affected area with a tarp or with a durable plastic shrink wrap material, until such a time when more permanent repairs can be made. We need to stop more moisture damage, so we can prevent mold growth.

Get your roof inspected, even if you think there is no problem, especially if your property falls anywhere within the area of the hail and wind damage map.

Some storm damage symptoms take time to appear.

And deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
