Watch for These Signs During Severe Weather...
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is a scientific agency within the United States Department of Commerce that focuses on the conditions of the oceans, major waterways, and the atmosphere. One of the main functions of NOAA is to warn of dangerous weather.
According to The Storm Prediction Center of the NOAA, when it comes to tornadoes, there is no guaranteed safety. Weather forecasting is not perfect, so it is possible for a tornado to occur without a warning. Knowing the signs of a tornado is one way to increase safety.
Here are several things the NOAA website says to look or listen for:
- Strong, persistent rotation in the cloud base.
- Whirling dust or debris on the ground under a cloud base -- tornadoes sometimes have no funnel!
- Hail or heavy rain followed by either dead calm or a fast, intense wind shift. Many tornadoes are wrapped in heavy precipitation and can't be seen.
- Loud, continuous roar or rumble, which doesn't fade in a few seconds like thunder.
These are just a few tips on what to look for during severe weather. More information can be found on the NOAA website. Tornadoes or severe storms often hit suddenly and can cause property damage that needs immediate attention. The SERVPRO of Northeast Cincinnati crews are always ready to help with services like securing a property, removing fallen trees, and tarping a roof.

Avoid Silly Accidents at the Office
Accidents often happen at the office that could be prevented with just a little common sense! Slips and falls frequently cause injury at the office and a little thought and care could help prevent this.
- Before sitting down at your desk, check behind you to make sure your chair hasn’t rolled away!
- If you are carrying something, don’t stack things up so high that you can’t see directly in front of you!
- Proceed with caution if the floor is wet or slippery!
- Don’t read or text while walking!
- Hold the handrail when using stairs!
- When carrying larger items like boxes, use the elevator!
- Close desk and file drawers before walking away to avoid tripping over them!
- Wipe up spills or wet floors in order to prevent slipping!
- Keep floors and aisles clear of electrical cords.
While it may seem easy to follow these tips, often times a hectic day at work can lead to rushing or just overlooking the small things that can be dangerous! Just slowing down a little bit to ensure safety can definitely save time in the future!

Happy Labor Day from SERVPRO of Northeast Cincinnati!

Be sure to practice safety tips with outdoor grilling or fire pits. Keep the grill or open flames a safe distance from anything that can catch fire. And always keep the children and pets away from the hot fire. Have a fire extinguisher available should an accident happen!
If you are traveling somewhere to celebrate, remember no drinking and driving! Keep an emergency supply kit or a first aid kit in your car. And always buckle up!
And don’t forget to follow safety guidelines in the swimming pool! Be aware of the weather conditions, keep an eye on the children, and always swim with a buddy!

Ways to Support the American Red Cross
The mission of the American Red Cross is to “help people prevent, prepare for, and respond to natural and other disasters through the immediate mobilization of people and resources and the provision of community, workplace, and school-based training.” In our area, the Greater Cincinnati/Ohio River Valley Chapter of the Red Cross organization serves 18 counties in Southwestern Ohio, Northern Kentucky and Southeastern Indiana. Examples of the types of disasters they respond to are floods, tornadoes, fires, and hurricanes. Many times, following a disaster, the American Red Cross workers are among the first on the scene. Their goal is to provide people with the support and resources they need, like food, clothing, and shelter.
Because of generous donations, caring volunteers, and abundant support, Red Cross relief services are free to those in need. The Red Cross totally relies on the generosity of the American public and there are many different ways to contribute. Some suggestions include:
- Monetary Donation
- Giving Blood
- Taking, Teaching, or Hosting a Class
