Wind after the storm

Wind after the storm

The day after the storm, the rough cleanup began in the pommersfelden district of wind. That is, actually started just a few hours after a tornado of the storm low "burglind" had swept through the small village and had caused damage to almost all properties.
With the help of rotating ladders from the fire departments in hirschaid and burgebrach, roof ridges were secured and roofs were provisionally sealed with foil on the same day. According to residents, a fire truck was also damaged by falling debris. Until about 18 o’clock the fire departments had been on the spot, was heard in wind.
On thursday, the roofers were already at work in many places. The whole ausmab the damage can not be estimated even now. The extent to which the solar systems are damaged will only be revealed by a detailed inspection. One house was found to have an offset in the roof trusses only the day after the devastating storm. "This must be checked for safety by a structural engineer", says the owner.
The most urgent work will be carried out first. This is almost always the sealing of the roofs, because an easing of the rain was not yet in sight on thursday. The fact that the county road between sambach and wind is flooded and closed by the high water does not make the work any easier. Getting "lost" again and again vehicles from the direction of schweinbach to wind and then have to turn around, which is sometimes difficult due to the construction vehicles.
Lucky for residents that for most roofers, carpenters or stuccoers, such emergencies take absolute priority over other work. It’s terrible when almost all the windows and blinds are smashed in this weather. Lucky if the owner is a carpenter by profession and was able to replace the broken windows with old ones. Otherwise, the coming days had become more than uncertain.
"We do have storm insurance, says another resident, but the settlement takes too much time. "In the meantime, the rain pours in and the damage gets even rougher." Because before repairs can begin, insurance companies require cost quotes.
We want to know if there has ever been a storm as terrible as this one. A local resident relates the testimony of an 88-year-old woman who was born in wind: she has never experienced anything like it. But she also says that in the old times the place was probably "in the wind" is said to have been buried.
