A Look Back at 2020 Hurricane Season

Although 2020 is now in the record books and we're not sorry to see it go, we can't help but look back at the record breaking hurricane season we experience this year.  There were 30 named storms and 12 landfalling storms in the continental United States, 6 of those were major hurricanes.  This is the most storms on record in one year surpassing the 2005 record of 28 storms. 

SERVPRO of Springfield/Greene County was honored to be a small part of the recovery efforts from these storms.  Our teams traveled in September to Lake Charles, Louisiana and also to Gulf Shores, Alabama to assist in the restoration efforts of back to back Hurricanes Laura and Sally.  We are privileged to be a part of the SERVPRO nationwide traveling storm team, helping other communities across the nation build back from these catastrophic storms that destroy their homes and businesses. In like when catastrophic storms and flooding hit our southwest Missouri community  storm teams from across the nation partner with us and are available to assist the needs of our community if needed. It is a wonderful partnership. 

As shown in the photo here a few large projects we worked on during this storm season, we also were able to assist local home owners as well. While in the Lake Charles area we were able to help a local Parks and Recreation restore 7 buildings at 5 different locations across the city.  These buildings suffered wind and water damage and had no power for weeks.  Our team was able to successfully bring in power needed via large generators and desiccants to clean and dry their buildings to prevent further damage. 

In Gulf Shores, Alabama in the aftermath of Hurricane Sally our team was responsible for restoring 385 units in two large condominium buildings.   

We are very proud of the work we were able to accomplish in these communities but we know that it would not be possible without the dedication and sacrifice of our outstanding team.  Those that travel and those that stay back home in the Springfield area to serve our local customers and keep operations running smoothly on the home front.
