Severe Storms Across Central United States Trigger Tornadoes And Flooding
Residential and commercial structures suffered extensive damage after flooding and a tornado outbreak struck counties in northern and central Indiana. Multiple tornadoes swept into northwest Ohio where structural damage was reported in several counties.
Historic flooding in southern Louisiana is considered the worst natural disaster to strike the United States since Superstorm Sandy. Nearly half of the state’s 64 parishes were declared disaster areas. More than 2 feet of rain caused damage to at least 40,000 residential and commercial structures in the Baton Rouge area.
When natural catastrophes strike, experienced Rimkus Consulting Group, Inc. forensic engineers and building consultants located in offices across North America are prepared to assist in assessing residential and commercial property losses throughout the affected areas.
