Nashville, TN, March 3, 2020 –The Tennessee Association of Roofing Contractors warn the public of a surge in storm chasers in light of last night’s storms. At least one tornado touched down northwest of Nashville as storms tracked east across Tennessee, according to the National Weather Service. Based on the damage in Mount Juliet and Donelson, there was at least one EF-3 tornado, with winds of up to 165 mph, the Weather Service said.
“While our hearts and prayers go out to those who were hit with this storm, “said Ashley Horner, TARC Communications Chair, “we also need to take precaution as we begin the rebuild process of the many storm chasers who will present themselves at your doorstep over the coming weeks.”
Storm chasing has gone up over the last decade, particularly in areas with high rates in development projects under way such as in the Nashville area. Many of these contractors are sadly looking to take advantage of other’s misfortune. To protect yourself, be sure that the contractor who is looking to help you is registered and holds a current license to work in the State of Tennessee and carries the proper insurance work.
