Manage Winter Storms with Event Pages

By | Communications, Customers

Although spring and summer bring with them their own weather problems, including wildfires and hurricanes, winter can be especially nasty. While a fire or hurricane can threaten business continuity for several days, winter storms can stretch on for weeks–even months. We pulled the following common winter dangers straight from NOAA:

  • Wind – Some winter storms have extremely strong winds that can create blizzard conditions with blinding, wind-driven snow, drifting, and dangerous wind chills. These intense winds can bring down trees and poles, and cause damage to homes and other buildings.
  • Snow – Heavy snow accumulations can immobilize a region, strand motorists, stop the flow of supplies, and disrupt emergency services. Buildings may even collapse, and trees and power lines can be destroyed by heavy snow.
  • Ice – Ice-covered roads make for dangerous driving conditions. Car wrecks can bring down objects like trees, utility poles, and communication towers. Winter can disrupt power for days before utility companies can repair the damage.
