Florida is famous as the lightning capital of the United States. The shape of the Floridan peninsula is such that it is surrounded by the warm water on the east and west coasts. The warm water acts as fuel for storms. The heat results in more evaporation and leads to violent lightning and hurricanes. Orlando in Florida is one of the most attractive cities in the United States. However, it is surprising that even though Orlando is an inland region, it still acts as a magnet for lightning and thunderstorms. The city’s temperature is very high during the day, reaching up to 80-90 degrees. However, the corridor between Orlando and Tampa is comparatively cool because of the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. The contrasting temperature is conducive to storm generation. Warm air flows through this corridor, making way for the cool breeze from the ocean to move inland. In these storms, the moisture content is high, so they turn into lightning storms. More hurricanes mean frequent lightning strikes and damages related to that.
Why do homeowners worry about lightning damage?
Over the last 50 years, more than 2000 residents of the state have suffered injuries related to lighting. A few precautionary measures such as storm alerts from the Government are rolled out, advising all residents to stay safe at their homes. Also, CDC asks residents to follow the 30-30 rule. The rule defines that when you see lightning, you must count to 30, and if you hear thunder before you finish counting, the storm has already arrived. It should act as a caution for the resident to leave all outdoor work and stay indoors. Property damage is very common as the central wiring of the house is vulnerable to lightning strikes. Experienced Public Adjusters in Orlando advise conducting the Megohm or Megger test after lightning damage. In this way, you can avoid long-lasting wiring problems at your house. The insurance providers may try to palm off cheaper solutions, but you can counter it by getting the Megohm test conducted by a qualified electrician.
