High Wind Warning for Denver?
Do you know what to do if there is a high wind warning in your area? SERVPRO® of Denver West responds to storm damage emergencies throughout the year, and many of these involve wind damage. Here is some information from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration on the types of wind alerts they issue:
High Wind Warning: Take Action! Sustained, strong winds with even stronger gusts are happening. Seek shelter. If you are driving, keep both hands on the wheel.
High Wind Watch: Be Prepared! Sustained, strong winds are possible. Secure loose items and adjust plans as necessary so you’re not caught outside.
Wind Advisory: Take Action: Strong winds are occurring but are not so strong to warrant a High Wind Warning. Objects outdoors should be secured, and caution should be taken if driving.
Severe Thunderstorm Warning: Take Action! A thunderstorm is happening or is imminent in the warning area. Severe thunderstorms have wind gusts of 58 miles per hour and/or hail one inch or larger. Seek shelter inside a sturdy building.

- Remove any dead trees or overhanging branches near structures
- Remove loose objects outdoors, on patios, roofs, or balconies that could blow away
- Shutter windows securely and brace outside doors
