At least eight tornadoes ripped through Central Mississippi on Tuesday, Nov.29th, leaving a wake of destruction and property owners in dire need of emergency roof repair.

RestoreMasters readied commercial roof inspection services and roof hail damage professionals as meteorologists predicted massive losses would be sustained across the region. Commercial property owners who need an inspection to fast-track insurance claims can call the roof repair office in Jackson, MS.  

“The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency said two injuries were reported in Pike County and so far, there have been reports of damage to 47 homes and two poultry farms. The majority of the damage was reported in Lowndes County, where the (National Weather Service) confirmed an EF2 tornado struck, damaging 20 homes. Twelve homes were damaged in Jasper County, where an EF2 tornado was confirmed,” according to KION 46 news. “The tornado in Bassfield laid waste to an agriculture building but missed a nearby house. Around the corner, a torn roof and shattered walls were just one sign of how strong the winds were.”

Commercial, institutional, and agricultural building owners concerned about wind, hail, or tornado damage are urged to request a complimentary roof inspection. It’s not uncommon for tornadoes to generate a vacuum force that negatively impact roofing systems. Many suffer delayed roof leaks and insurance corporations may be inclined to deny late claims.

A local high wind, hail, and tornado damage map shows a pair of hailstorms trekking across Central Mississippi. The yellows areas south of Winona and north of West Point show hailstones up to 1.25 inches pelted automobiles and roofing systems. The orange centers of these storms indicate hailstones up to 1.75 inches cracked shingles and dented metal roof panels.

The National Weather Service hail, high wind, and tornado damage map shows numerous storms stretching across Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky. All told, there were 95 high wind incidents, 42 hailstorms, and 57 tornados on Tuesday, Nov. 29th. Traditional and social media platforms reported extensive damage across Central Mississippi that includes the following.

  • Attala County: A twister touched down north of Carmack.
  • Carroll County: Vaiden was pounded by hail the size of hen eggs, according to social media posts.
  • Choctaw County: Images confirmed a tree crashed through a roof in Sherwood. A building was badly damaged in Bywy, and an RV was tossed across Hester Road. In Chester, downed trees blocked roads.
  • Hinds County: A twister toppled trees on Highway 22 near Brownsville.
  • Holmes County: Ice stones the size of half-dollars pelted Tchula.
  • Lee County: Baldwyn took hail strikes the size of golf balls at 10:30 pm.
  • Lowndes County: Heavy tornado damage was sustained in Woodlawn, where people were trapped in Malones Grocery. The doors of the Station Two Fire Dept. building were torn off and the roof caved. A church steeple was reportedly destroyed by the fierce winds. Social media images show possible tornado damage at Mt. Zion Presbyterian Church.
  • Monroe County: High winds ripped shingles and entire roofs off buildings across the county.
  • Sunflower County: At least four utility poles were downed in the Inverness area.

The high wind and hail damage to roofing systems can be promptly inspected and repaired by enlisting the support of an experienced restoration contractor. RestoreMasters responded to Demopolis, AL, to make fix hail damage and provide commercial roof inspection services after a storm struck on October 12, 2022.

Some roofing systems can be severely harmed by damage from heavy winds, tornadoes, or hail. Some older roofs can sustain damage from only 50 mph winds. 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.

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.
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. Symptoms of storm damage problems do not always show up immediately. And insurance companies sometimes enforce deadlines for claims, so you need to get your claim filed quickly.
