What Should I Do When a High Wind Warning is Issued for Beckley?

5/9/2023 (Permalink)

A young person’s hair is blown about by strong winds. We are leaders in storm damage restoration services in Raleigh County.

Recently high wind warnings were issued for Raleigh County. Our local Beckley team responds to storm damage emergencies 24 hours a day, and we typically arrive onsite within four hours of your call for help. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration offers this helpful information about wind warnings, watches, and advisories:

High Wind Warning: Take Action! Sustained, strong winds with even stronger gusts are happening. Seek shelter. If you are driving, keep both hands on the wheel.

High Wind Watch: Be Prepared! Sustained, strong winds are possible. Secure loose items and adjust plans as necessary so you’re not caught outside.

Wind Advisory: Take Action: Strong winds are occurring but are not so strong to warrant a High Wind Warning. Objects outdoors should be secured, and caution should be taken if driving.  

Severe Thunderstorm Warning: Take Action! A thunderstorm is happening or is imminent in the warning area. Severe thunderstorms have wind gusts of 58 miles per hour and/or hail one inch or larger. Seek shelter inside a sturdy building.

Preparing for High Winds

  • Remove any dead trees or overhanging branches near structures
  • Remove loose objects outdoors, on patios, roofs, or balconies that could blow away
  • Shutter windows securely and brace outside doors
  • Bring in unsecured objects from outside and secure objects that could blow away and cause damage or injury
