We send out a lot of poly tarps this time of year due to tornadoes. We are making more poly tarps for hurricane season.

As The National Weather Service declared a "flash flood emergency" for Natchitoches Parish, The leading U.S. tarp supplier Tarps Plus was busy sending out poly tarps to people in need. Poly tarps can serve us as shelters and barriers against the elements. The needs have become more prevalent with recent weather such as destructive tornadoes and floods.
Last years Joplin Missouri tornado destroyed many homes and businesses many people used tarps to protect what little they had left from further damage. Many people had nothing at all left but a pile of rubble as is the reality of so many of these tragedies. Temporary shelter and staging areas for relief is often aided by the use of these handy tools.
This year’s tornadoes in Indiana and Illinois have caused a higher demand for the tarps. Tarps themselves can serve us in every day functions as well as being useful for all sorts of emergency functions. Having an extra one or two of them around the house as well as in your vehicle will turn out to be a good idea more often than you would expect. They serve as great rain and sun shields for any outdoor need.
A representative of Tarps Plus Angelina Urquardt quoted, “We send out a lot of poly tarps this time of year due to tornadoes. We are making more poly tarps for hurricane season.”
The tarps serve different functions when it comes to fending off mother nature. Mesh tarps allow for air to flow through the barrier while still keeping out the harsh sunlight. Canvas tarps are better for rain resistance, and the coating they have can make them even more beneficial for keeping out all the elements.
The need for tarps is growing with the changing weather patterns in the U.S. like to tornadoes and floods. Anything that can be a huge help in almost any troubled situation is a good thing to have around. They are easy to attach to things with the grommets they usually come equipped with. Have a few tarpaulins handy where ever you live and where ever you go, you just never know when you are going to need them.
Recent events worldwide have created and increased need for tarps. Where ever there is a massive catastrophe you will find tarps of all kinds being put to use in the aid of people who are in need of help. The tarp itself may seem like too simple of an item to have any great impact, but that is not the case at all.
After horrible earthquakes and tsunamis in Asia there were thousands of people who were in need of aid and assistance. Without shelter from the elements it became difficult to even help these people in need. Tarp shelters acted as staging areas for relief efforts as well as make shift homes. Hospital areas where also erected out of tarps in many locations to treat the sick and injured.
It is a lot easier to make a quick and simple tarp shelter with ropes and bungees than it is to build a solid structure of any kind. This allows for immediate relief from the elements. The faster a shelter can be set up and put into use the faster the healing and recovery efforts can get underway. Time is always of the essence and lives will be saved with swift action and assistance.
