Nothing can put your roof to the test more than bad weather. El Nino is expected to be worse than usual this year, and can cause serious damage to your roof. Good preparation can keep your home safe.

What Is El Nino?

You probably have heard the terms hundreds of times, but few people know the meaning. El Nino is a climate cycle from the Pacific Ocean. The cycle begins when the warm water of the Western Pacific Ocean moves towards the South American coast.

When this occurs, it is known as an El Nino event. The change in water temperature causes tropical storms to move eastwards. Hurricanes in the Eastern Pacific US are more likely to occur during this time. There is also usually an increase in precipitation and colder temperatures all along the southern US. This event can last for up to a year.

What is Expected?

This year, El Nino is expected to cause severe weather. Models of El Nino are predicting that there will be severe flooding in California and nearby states this year. The weather is expected to be similar to the weather in 1997, when California experienced downpours and floods. Homes were damaged from the heavy rainfall, and a similar result is expected this year.

How to Prepare for El Nino

Something as simple as a roof inspection can keep your home safe from heavy rain. Even if you only have minor damage, it can become significant in bad weather. A thorough roof inspection can keep your home prepared for El Nino and prevent the need for an emergency roof repair.
