Thunderstorms Warning Issued for Otay Mesa?

9/20/2022 (Permalink)

Huge thunderclouds fill the sky. We respond to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in San Diego.

This summer, the National Weather Service issued many weather alerts for San Diego County. We’ve had flash flood warnings, heat warnings, and thunderstorm warnings. Our Otay Mesa and San Ysidro team responds to storm damage emergencies 24-hours a day in Otay Mesa.

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), thunderstorms can produce strong wind gusts that have been known to exceed 100 miles per hour. Here are some more interesting facts about thunderstorm winds from the NOAA:

  • Thunderstorms should be treated like you would a tornado. Move to an appropriate shelter if you’re in the storm’s path.
  • The strong outrush of wind from a thunderstorm is often called a downburst. Downbursts are caused by rain-cooled air, which accelerates rapidly downward, producing a potentially damaging gust of wind.
  • Strong downbursts are often mistaken for tornadoes, and they can produce extensive damage and are often accompanied by a roaring sound similar to that of a tornado. Downbursts can easily overturn mobile homes, tear roofs off of houses, and topple trees.
