Bend Oregon Weather Advisory Due to High Winds
A weather alert for Central Oregon was issued, warning that winds coming from the south will be coming towards the area at 15 to 25 mph with gusts up to 45 mph. The weather alert warned that the speed of these wind gusts could blow around unsecured objects, tree limbs and possibly cause some power outages.
SERVPRO of Bend was called out to a local neighborhood where high winds had blown some roof tiles off of a house. The high winds wreaked havoc in the area. The residential street, where the home was located had various obstacles such as trash cans roof tiles and tree limbs littering the street.
SERVPRO of Bend Technicians found that about a third of the tiles on the main apex of the roof had blown off. Judging from the damage, it appeared that this part of the roof took the brunt of the high wind gusts. The homeowner said she heard a quick wind burst that shook her house. As the gusts went over the house, she heard a lot of debris hitting her car and the adjoining property. Upon going outside, she saw that that the debris were roof tiles that had blown off her house.
SERVPRO of Bend Technicians climbed on the roof, using the proper retractable fall arrest protection and were able to tarp the roof to protect the inside from further damage.
If you have damage due to high winds or storm, don't hesitate to call SERVPRO of Bend at (541) 385-7044.
