Superstorm Vs. Hurricane how it Affects your Long Beach/Oceanside Property
What is a Super-storm? What is a Hurricane? Either way we all know that they can lead to devastating damage to both your property or business.
According to www.differencebetween.net here are the differences between Super-storms & Hurricanes:
"A super-storm is a storm system that does not have a specific meteorological definition. It is used to refer to storms that unusually intense and do not fit into any particular category. The term has been applied to storm systems happening in a variety of climates ranging from near the tropics to cold temperate latitudes. Meteorologists began using the term super-storm in the 1990's to describe especially powerful storms."
An example of a classified super-storm was super-storm Sandy which devastated our community. Although there are no clear meteorological definitions for super-storms there are some common characteristics which are typically extratropical cyclones. These types of storms do not occur frequently, usually only once every few decades.
Hurricanes on the other hand:
"A hurricane is another name for a type of tropical cyclone. It is an intense storm that originates in the tropics and can migrate into subtropical and temperate climatic zones. It is characterized by powerful winds that go in a circular route around a clearly defined central “eye” of low pressure which is surrounded by higher pressure regions."
Hurricanes and super-storms do have some similarities which are that they both lead to powerful weather disturbances involving high wind-speeds and often of precipitation.
When hurricane season arrives be sure to contact SERVPRO of Long Beach/Oceanside for all of your storm damage needs at 516-536-1801
