The difference between weather watches and weather warnings
Here at SERVPRO of Tigard/Tualatin/Lake Oswego/West Linn and Beaverton, we believe in the importance of preparedness. With winter storms looming on our horizon, it’s more important than ever to review your preparedness knowledge.
If you need a refresher on the difference between watches and warnings, review the following:
Winter Weather Advisory means: Expect winter weather conditions to cause inconvenience and hazards.
Front/Freeze Warning means: Expect below-freezing temperatures and prepare for those conditions.
Winter Storm Watch means: Be alert - a storm is likely to occur. Double check your emergency kits and review your preparedness measures.
Winter Storm Warning means: The storm is in or entering the area. Take safety precautions now and be wary if you are outside or traveling during the storm.
Blizzard Warning means: Seek refuge immediately! Snow and strong winds, near-zero visibility, deep snow drifts, and life-threatening wind chill.
Remember, no matter the severity of the storm, damage from the storm is still possible. Prepare yourself and your family, and prepare your property for the storm conditions. If damage still occurs, trust that SERVPRO of Tigard/Tualatin is ready to help you recover.
