Know Who To Call During The Bomb Cyclone
Residents of Charlotte have recently been affected by the bomb cyclone that has been raging throughout East Coast. The media is referring to this destructive storm as “bombogenesis,” which is when the air pressure drops rapidly during a 24 hour period.
The drop in air pressure drops so much when cold air mixes with warm ocean waters, triggering what is known as a bomb cyclone. This current storm is said to be one of the worst in modern history, predicted to be even worse than hurricane Sandy.
The heavy winds and snow are causing intense blizzards that causing more than afoot of snowfall in some areas, with winds getting up to 60 miles per hour. Winds of this speed will almost certainly cause power outages and major flooding.
Not only will the wind, rain and snow be exceptionally powerful, but the cold that accompanies this bomb cyclone is being described as numbing. Staying safe and warm during the storm is of the utmost importance, and the staff at 911 Restoration is standing by around the clock to help at all costs.
Keep Your Pipes From Causing A Home Flood
With temperatures dropping as quickly as they are during this storm, it can be difficult to stop your pipes from freezing. However, it is still important to take precautions when you can, as well as maintain current instances of frozen pipes.
The best way to stop your pipes from bursting is by keeping a constant flow of water dripping throughout the plumbing system at all times. Keep your faucets open just enough to keep a small drop flowing around the clock.
It is also wise to keep the sink cabinet doors open in order to expose them from the warm air coming from your home’s heating system. You will be surprised how much this will help keep the water from freezing up.
Even if you take these precautions, a storm of this magnitude may still cause parts of your plumbing system to freeze. Stay on top of this by checking your pipes, especially the ones adjacent to an exterior wall or near the part of the property that the water enters the structure.
If you do find a frozen section, immediately take efforts to thaw the pipe. You can do this by taking a hair dryer to the frozen area, placing a heating pad on it or by wrapping it in towels soaked in boiling water.
