Seismic restraints and supports keep your building secure.
With summer season upon us, most of us will enjoy the warm, sunny weather and clear skies. Here in the south, we have the fortune of experiencing milder winter weather with severe heat during the summer. We’re also accustomed to severe weather in many forms during the summer months- from rain showers with heavy winds to tornadoes and even effects from hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico.
Unfortunately, many of us are all too familiar with natural disasters and the devastation they can bring. Irreparable damage costs millions of dollars in cleanup and replacement and often times businesses and factories never fully recover. This past April, a tornado ripped through the town of Athens, Alabama, flattening the entire neighborhood, with homes and businesses alike.
The Limestone County Emergency Management Agency reported at least $2.75 million in tornado damage during the April storm. A massive $2 billion in property damage was accrued in May 2013 as a massive tornado ripped through Moore, Oklahoma, displacing a 17-mile stretch of schools, homes and businesses.
In addition to high wind and tornadic activity, the United States Geological Survey has published the following map of the highest seismic hazard areas in the United States; it’s alarming to note just how much of the country could feel the effects from seismic activity.
