Mesa, AZ, June 15th, 2015 -- Today is the official start of the monsoon season in the Southwest. It begins on June 15th and officially ends on September 30th. The season typically begins with exceptionally warm weather which is following by an influx of moisture that creates conditions conducive for rain and thunderstorms.
Although the annual monsoon season brings much needed moisture to the arid Southwest, it can also create hazardous conditions and property damage due to extreme heat, dust storms, thunderstorms, lightning, wildfires, strong winds, downbursts, hail and flash floods. In fact, many parts of Arizona receive up to half their annual rainfall during these few months.
“People should prepare their families, homes and businesses for the powerful storms typical of the monsoon season,” said Douglas Waldie, President of Hudson Douglas Public Adjusters, LLC. “Pay attention to weather reports and having a disaster supply kit ready is always a good idea. Because monsoon storms can knock out power in areas, sometimes for days, the kit should include food that doesn’t require refrigeration, water, flashlights, medications and clothing. Also check for potential roof leaks before the rains come and secure items on the property that could blow away. This is also a good time to have any trees trimmed near buildings to prevent possible damage from broken limbs. Last, but not least, before the storms arrive make sure any property insurance is up to date and will provide coverage for the all types of damage associated with monsoon storms.”
