Ice Storms in Beckley?

Our local team in Beckley is trained and certified to restore storm damage in Beckley by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), the nonprofit certifying body for the cleaning and restoration industries. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) describes ice storms as heavy accumulations of ice that can bring down trees and utility poles and communication towers. Bridges and overpasses are extremely dangerous because they freeze faster than other surfaces.

Black ice is another ice storm hazard defined by patchy ice on roadways or other transportation surfaces that cannot be easily seen because it is clear (not white) with the black road surface underneath. It is most prevalent in the early morning hours, especially after the snow melts on the roadways, and has a chance to refreeze overnight.

Ice jams occur when long cold spells cause rivers and lakes to freeze. A rise in the water level or a thaw breaks the ice into large chunks, which become jammed at manmade and natural obstructions. The ice dams can act as a dam and cause severe flooding.
