Wind, rain, hail, tornadoes, and other elements can cause extensive damage to your home and property, so it’s always a good idea to be prepared for what Mother Nature throws your way. When you live in Nashville, TN, Mother Nature throws everything from thunderstorms and hurricane force winds to tornadoes. Being prepared for any severe storm scenario by following this guide will help you decrease your risk of water damage in the future.

Tornadoes in Nashville, TN

Everyone needs to know what to do to be prepared in case a tornado is spotted in your area. The first thing to understand is that tornadoes are unpredictable. They can happen any time of year although almost two-thirds of tornadoes take place in the spring months (March through June).

There have been about 500 tornadoes reported in the middle Tennessee region since the first tornado in 1833. In March 2020, a tornado ripped through the middle of Nashville, TN, bringing strong winds and heavy rains with it. This particular storm caused widespread damage that led to trees and power lines falling and 40,000 residents being left without power. The tornado that caused this outage was mostly north and east of the heart of downtown, sparing many of the city’s biggest tourism draws, instead hitting a large residential community.

Preparing for Spring Storms in Nashville, TN

Advance planning for thunderstorms, lightning, tornadoes, and floods requires specific safety precautions. Keep an emergency kit on hand that includes some essential items to get you through the storm and practice your emergency plan periodically to prepare for every type of severe weather. Show family members where the emergency supplies are stored, and make sure they know how to turn off the water, gas, and electricity in your home.
