With each passing season, community banks face weather-related hazards for which to prepare. After winter blows through with ice and snow, the spring spawns potentially dangerous storms. While the costliest product of a thunderstorm is hail, the most violent storm is a tornado. In the United States alone, severe thunderstorms and tornadoes caused over $10 billion in property damage in 2015. As the seasons begin to change, community banks can take this opportunity to look at measures that could help protect people, buildings and property before a storm potentially causes damage.
