As previously mentioned, tropical storms are now a concern for claims adjusting specialists and other professionals to consider, and the first of these major storms has now been given a name as it progresses across the gulf toward Florida.
With the potential for high winds and rains, there's reportedly a chance that it might even bring tornadoes in the area, in addition to the damage it would cause by its presence alone (although the tornadoes that were spawned in this case would most likely be of a low intensity as this storm is reportedly not expected to mature into a full-fledged hurricane). This seems to be in keeping with the predictions for this year's hurricane season, which is expected to bring a higher than usual number of named storms.
Communities across the state have been warned of the potential danger from this system, which has been officially christened Tropical Storm Andrea, and is expected to bring as much as six inches of rain to the northern parts of Florida, CNN reported. High water surges are another danger that could appear, and have in fact already been detected in Alabama.
The storm is also expected to have repercussions felt in nearby places like Georgia. As such, the National Weather Service has been releasing advisory statements for places like Tallahassee, Jacksonville and the Tampa Bay Area.
No matter what kind of harsh weather events transpire as a result of this storm, claims adjusting services can have a significant role to play in the event of property destruction. As more warnings are issued and local authorities advise citizens to stay alert, professionals can begin reaching out to those workers who would become necessary once damage has occurred.
