Mitigate Tornado Damage through Proper Roof Maintenance

Tornadoes are among the most destructive and deadly forces of nature. Nowhere else on the planet are these violent weather patterns more frequent than right here in the US. Tornado Alley gets more than any other location on the planet; storms that cost the US billions of dollars in damage annually.

As part of this deadly alley, North Dakota and Minnesota are no strangers to tornadoes. A swarm touched down in different areas across North Dakota recently. According to a report from

Multiple tornadoes and funnel clouds were reported across North Dakota last night including at least two in Cass County.

Law enforcement reported a funnel cloud shortly after six, north of Chafee.

About 10 minutes later, a funnel cloud touched in a field near Casselton.

A deputy spotted a tornado on the ground 12 miles northwest of Jamestown traveling toward the city.

Emergency Manager Jerry Bergquist says warning sirens sounded three times in a half hour after Doppler radar indications of storm rotation.

Elsewhere, funnel clouds were spotted northwest of Gwinner and another just west of Devils Lake.

No damage or injuries were reported in any of the events.

Thankfully, these violent storms happened far from any major population center. It’s still no excuse to be complacent, however, as disaster may strike when you least expect it.

Summer, aside from the heat and humidity, also brings about severe weather conditions like these. We know for a fact that nothing can really stop very violent storms, but we also know that you can mitigate damage to your property by investing in durable housing materials.

One of the most vulnerable components of any house is the roof. Among the parts of your house, it is the one that takes the brunt of the weather – heat, rain, snow, UV light and hail, are just some of the kinds of abuse it takes on a regular basis.
