Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) March 20, 2013
StructureMEDIC is a water damage and storm damage restoration service in Atlanta, Georgia. This week, Stephen Elliot, owner of the restoration service, was interviewed about his company’s assistance to homes in the Atlanta area and the surrounding areas that have suffered damage from the extreme weather that ripped through the city on Monday, March 19.
“Storms like the one we had last night can really do some damage to your home,” Elliott said Tuesday when reached for comment. “Sometimes it seems like it can be especially bad here; so many houses have been built in or very near flood plains, and when the sky just opens up like that, that water has nowhere to go but into your basement."
On Monday, Atlanta saw huge storming after a beautiful, sunny weekend. Monday evening, around rush hour, rain and marble-sized hail pounded down on homes and cars, while wind whipped through. There were several tornado warnings and watches, and some areas suffered such heavy storm damage that schools and businesses were closed on Tuesday. Falling trees were responsible for much of the damage.
“The thing about Atlanta is we’ve got lots of pine trees,” said Elliott. “It doesn’t take much to bring them down, and if they hit your house—even if it’s just a heavy branch—they can create a hole that lets all that rain water in.”
