Winter Storm Wayne
Winter Storm Wayne made its way through the northeast last night and into this morning leaving a path of heavy wet snow behind. The trees are bowing under the weight of the snow on the branches and with the weight of the snow being heavy there has also been power outages due to broken branches or trees coming down on them. Trees and their branches are also in jeopardy of coming down on your home or business as well. What do you do if a tree does fall on your home or business?
- Do not run up to the tree to survey the damage until it is verified that there are no power lines down and no gas lines have been affected.
- If the power lines are affected or you smell gas ,do not approach the area and call the electric or gas company immediately. Also inform your local authorities.
- If the home or business is secure, then make sure everyone is out of the business or home and are safe.
- Take plenty of pictures and inform your insurance company of the damage.
