Q: What Damage Can Blizzard Winds Cause?

A: Blizzard winds can gust from 50 mph to 100 mph. Needless to say, that can cause some serious damage to your home. The biggest issue with wind is that gusts can pick up heavy objects and throw them into your home. This can do everything from damaging siding to breaking windows. Another issue with blizzard winds is the potential for broken tree branches. A heavy, snow-covered branch falling on your roof can cause some serious damage, sometimes even warranting a new roof.
