home devastated by tornado This Jefferson City home reflects severe damage sustained by an EF-3 tornado that struck Jefferson City on May 22, 2019.

On the evening of May 22, 2019, at 11:43 p.m., Jefferson City was struck by an EF-3 tornado where it destroyed or greatly damaged a warehouse and car dealership.  As it moved into downtown Jefferson City it caused severe damage to numerous  homes and businesses and uprooted or snapped trees.  The path of this storm was 32.63 miles with a maximum path width of 1500 yards.  

If there is any good news to devastation of this nature it is that only 33 people sustained injuries. 

According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Agency (NOAA)External there is no guaranteed safety during a tornado. Even the possibility of a tornado must be taken seriously.  You can survive a tornado if you follow safety precautions. Your SERVPRO of Jefferson City friends would like to share with you what to do in the event of a tornado or when you hear a tornado warning.  This information is offered by The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. https://www.cdc.gov/disasters/tornadoes/index.html

Devastation from storm season requires cleanup and restoration.  Give your friends at SERVPRO of Jefferson City a call at 573-635-5883 to help in the aftermath of any storm and flooding.
