Bryter Restoration of Wilmington, an industry pioneer in the field of water damage mitigation and mold remediation within Wilmington and the other cities and counties within the region, emphasizes the need to always be prepared and ready to limit the destruction that storms cause. The past has shown that, following September 10, the Carolinas were hit by the most severe storms. This water damage restoration company serves several counties within the region that include Brunswick County, Pender County, Onslow County, Carteret County, Horry County, and New Hanover County NC. The residents of these counties should be sure to inspect their homes and always be prepared because over 60 percent of the hurricanes that hit the region occurred between September and October.
One of the most well-known hurricanes that struck the Carolinas was hurricane Diana and arrived on September 13 1984, in the vicinity of Wilmington, NC with sustained speeds of 100 mph. This particular hurricane took an interesting route in a loop, so that it traversed North Carolina twice, further increasing the damage and flooding.
Hurricane Florence also struck Wilmington as a Category 1 hurricane on September 14, 2018, but it was upgraded to a category 4 hurricane that caused record flooding to the Charlotte region. On the 16th of September 1999 when Hurricane Floyd was able to land on the Carolina Coast with winds reaching 110 mph. It poured over 20 inches of rainfall. It was the highest recorded in the region at the moment until Hurricane Florence was able to surpass it.
The most powerful hurricane to strike land within the Carolinas was Hurricane Hugo on the 22nd of September 1989. Its peak winds ranged from 135-140 mph, and it was especially destructive because it created a 20-foot tide across the Coast and spread the winds throughout the Carolinas including the Charlotte region.
Experts in the field of weather have predicted that between three and five Category 3 or 5 hurricanes could hit the Wilmington area by 2021. Homeowners and property owners should be looking over the trees that are in their yard and look for weak or dead branches and remove them since they can easily break and potentially strike people or property.
Also, it is important to secure doors, windows as well as other areas of the house to limit the chance of them being damaged. It is possible to cover these areas with plywood that has been cut or hurricane shutters to shield them from debris flying around and forceful winds. It is also important to keep in mind that any items left that are left in the garden or outside the home could be carried away by wind and cause property damage and injuries to individuals. If they aren’t able to be carried into the home it is recommended to tie them down with a secure knot.
Also, you run a substantial possibility of flooding from the rains caused by storms or powerful winds can cause damage to plumbing. It is recommended to make sure the gutters are clear and free of any debris so that rainwater can drain away from the roof in a timely manner. If not, pools water may form on the roof, and could result in damage to your roof. The overflowing gutters due to them being blocked may cause the rainwater to flow to unintentional locations, causing damage to structural components and weakening the structure of the house.
