Lightning in Cheyenne!
Summer Time in Cheyenne
Here in Cheyenne, it is the middle of summer. With summer comes thunderstorms and with thunderstorms comes lightning. In fact, all thunderstorms produce lightning!
Lightning can cause damage to humans, the environment, and structures alike. Lightning is the number one cause of death from natural disasters yearly. For safety reasons, when thunderstorms hit, it is best to stay inside and away from windows. If you can’t get inside, try to get to a vehicle and/or stay away from trees.
Damage to the Environment
Lightning can reach temperatures of up to 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit. Due to temperatures this high, lightning is known to catch grass and trees on fire with a single strike. If this fire is not contained, it can and will spread to other structures.
Damage to Structures
With lightning reaching such high temperatures, if your house or structure gets hit, you need to call the fire department. Lightning takes the path of least resistance. This means that lightning will travel through metal and wood but not brick. Wood cannot handle the high temperatures that lightning produces and thus will combust.

Hail Damage in Cheyenne
DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO WHEN HAIL STRIKES?
Cheyenne has experienced a number of major hail storms in the past few years. These storms have caused damage to many cars and buildings. This damage comes in many shapes and sizes, from broken windows, siding damage, to roof damage just to name a few.
What kind of damage can hail cause?
Hail can cause more damage to your home than just to the shingles on your roof and broken windows. When there is roof damage or broken windows from hail, there could possibly be an issue with water damage if the damage is severe enough. In these instances, SERVPRO of Cheyenne is here to help. We can help stop the source of water damage by boarding up and tarping damaged windows, and roofs along with clean up debris from the damage i.e. broken glass. When the source has been stopped, we can also assist with the water damage at hand.
