Bomb Cyclone in Denver?
March is the snowiest month in Denver, getting about 11.4 inches of snow each year. March of 2020 brought a record-setting bomb cyclone to Denver that brought ninety miles per hour winds, ice, and snow and left two-hundred thousand people without power throughout the day. SERVPRO® of Denver North responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year and knows that fast response time is key to minimizing further damage and repair costs.
Here are some safety tips from the American Red Cross for staying safe AFTER a power outage has occurred:
- Keep away from power lines. Stay at least 35 feet away from fallen power lines and anything they are touching. Call 911 and let them know.
- Avoid electrical shock in flood areas. Don’t go into flooded areas or use any electrical equipment or electronics that may have been submerged. Have a qualified electrical inspector check the electrical system.
- When in doubt, throw it out. If food is 40 degrees F or warmer, especially dairy and meat, throw it out. Ask your provider about using refrigerated medicines.
- Prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Keep generators, camp stoves, and charcoal grills outdoors only in well-ventilated areas at least 20 feet away from windows.
