Time to Learn About Hail!
Hail is an extremely interesting weather event, and a dangerous one too. SERVPRO of Southern Trumbull County is here to tell you all about hail’s formation, when it becomes dangerous, and how to stay safe!
Hail can sometimes be misconstrued as freezing rain. The National Geographic Society explains that freezing rain falls to the ground as rain and freezes as it moves towards the ground, while hail falls as a solid! Hail forms in the colder, upper parts of thunderstorm clouds when water droplets freeze together. That is why it is a solid, unlike freezing rain.
When is Hail Dangerous?
Hail is dangerous all the time, but hail comes in different sizes which can determine how harmful it can be to your Warren home. It is easy to classify hail when comparing them to common items. The National Weather Service says that hail that is “Marble-sized” and smaller is not severe. But when you get to “Dime-sized” and higher it is classified as severe. Their significant severe category consists of hail the size of softballs!
Now that you know a little more about hail, let us go over some safety tips! If there is a hailstorm, do not go outside. Always stay indoors when hail is present. You should also close your drape and curtains to make sure no one experiences an injury from broken glass. If you are driving during a hailstorm, pull over and avoid traffic lights. You should also move away from windows.
