Winter Storms Pack a Double Punch Across the Country

Back-to-back named winter storms, Cleon and Dion, have created icy, snowy conditions from Amarillo, Texas through the Ohio River Valley, and from the Pacific Northwest to parts of Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Utah, continuing through the central states, and reaching New England today. The storms have caused downed trees and power lines, leaving hundreds of thousands of people without power as emergency crews work diligently to restore service. Ice and snow, along with freezing temperatures, are anticipated to cause damage to roads, bridges, water supply, sewers, electrical grids, telecommunications, and building structures, such as roofs, foundations and plumbing systems, as well as disruption of normal business operations.

Rimkus is ready to assist in evaluating property damage and business interruption issues throughout the affected areas. Please call 800-580-3228 to request engineering and consulting assistance services.
