Summer Storms Have Started in Oregon
While out visiting with one of our local clients, I caught word that they would be down an employee starting tonight. My thought, oh no- did COVID hit? Without hesitation, they advised that their employee is a volunteer fire fighter and was called out to a wildfire. It has started, the storms Summer Storms of Oregon have begun. High temperatures of over 100 degrees mixed with humidity this week created the perfect storm of lightning strikes. The Cascade Mountains east of Salem took the brunt of lightning with a handful of strikes igniting. Currently there are 6 small wildfires burning deep within the vegetation. Many volunteer fire fighters are currently heading that way to help in assisting with many counties to tackle these head on. Here at SERVPRO we salute our fellow emergency responders and the volunteers that show up to protect. We also keep a close eye to see that no property damage is at risk. However if you are affected by wildfires this summer, know that we here at SERVPRO are here to help!
