We will take on an insurance claim anywhere in Florida. Read on to discover the reality of tornadoes in Florida and the damage they can wreak.
In this article from the Florida Gainsville Sun, it is revealed that Florida is the #1 nation in the US for tornadoes. That might come as a surprise since Florida is thought to be known more for hurricanes when it comes to extreme weather. A Weather Channel study conducted by Greg Forbes, one of the nation’s leading tornado experts, used the raw number of tornadoes to hit each state per year per 10,000 square miles in each state. Forbes concluded, “Florida has the most thunderstorms per square mile and some of those storms produce tornadoes.” This makes Florida the thunderstorm capital of the nation.
The good news is that most tornadoes in Florida are weaker versions, EF-0, and EF-1, as opposed to E-4, and E-5 tornadoes that are typical of the Midwest. However, one major problem for Florida residents is that we never know when a tornado may strike without warning, as they are usually wrapped inside a typical thunderstorm.
When Florida Tornadoes Strike You Need a Public Adjuster

However, there are all kinds of damages that tornadoes can wreak, such as damage to your car, personal injury if you are out in the storm, flooding, or even cause a fire at your residence or business property.
