How a Storm Forms
Although a rainstorm is not always fun, learning about them sure is. So how does a storm form? The following is a summary made by University Corporation for Atmospheric Research on how a storm is formed. "The action of warm air rising and cold air sinking (convection) plays a key role in the formation of severe thunderstorms. If the warm surface air is forced to rise, it will continue to rise, because it is less dense than the surrounding air. In addition, it will transfer heat from the land surface to upper levels of the atmosphere through the process of convection. Two of the most important ingredients for thunderstorm formation is instability (unstable air) and moisture". Make sure your home is prepared for a storm and if needed, treat your home after one. Cleaning up after a storm can be a tedious task. If not done properly, your home can have secondary damages that could have been prevented. Make sure to consult your questions and concerns with a professional and have your home inspected.
