Hurricanes can cause catastrophic damage to coastlines and for several hundred miles inland. A hurricane can produce excessive winds as well as tornadoes and microbursts. Additionally, hurricanes can create storm surges along the coast and cause extensive damage from heavy rainfall. Floods and flying debris from the excessive winds are often the deadly and destructive results of these weather events. Are you Hurricane Ready Englewood?
