Severe Weather Slams Houston

Severe Weather HoustonSevere weather hit much of Houston late Sunday night, punctuating a week that saw the city subjected to extreme winds and heavy rain.

Multiple severe thunderstorm warnings and tornado warnings were issued for several counties throughout Sunday evening, and heavy rain hit the Woodlands, Spring, Tomball, Jersey Village, and other areas north of I-10. Sunday was one of several days that the Houston area was hit by extreme weather; thunderstorms late Friday night left many areas, including Sugar Land, Richmond, and Rosenberg, without power.

In addition to power outages, several areas suffered downed trees and power lines following heavy winds and, in some areas, hail.

Storms are projected to pick back up later in the week, with Wednesday, Thursday and Friday expected to see some form of thunderstorm.

Bucket trucks are critical in maintaining the city’s infrastructure during severe weather conditions like the ones Houston has been experiencing. Storms can be problematic, particularly to those in the construction and electrical industry, as they struggle to sustain the city’s telecommunications and power supply.

For these industries, the best way to be prepared for severe weather is to ensure that your company has the equipment needed for such emergency situations.
