The Different Ways the Weather Can Damage Your Home

Weather comes in many forms, whether your region sees light rain or intense storms. Sometimes this weather can be beautiful, and other times, this weather can damage your home in many ways, leaving you to foot the bill. Many homes have different forms of protection from this weather, but even with those protections, the weather can still damage you and your home in a few ways.

Rain and Flooding

Rain is likely one of the most common types of weather you’ll experience where you live. It’s a common weather occurrence, but it doesn’t always appear in the same way. Sometimes you’ll get a drizzle, while other times, the rain will come with thunderstorms and barrage your home. Rain can hurt your home in many ways, causing:

  • Leaks
  • Overloaded gutters
  • Flooding
  • Mold and mildew

Another way that rain and flooding can damage your home is by attracting different pests. Standing water is the perfect environment for mosquitos and other pests, and during rainstorms, other animals may try to escape the rain by finding refuge in your home. While rain can be bad all by itself, the pests it attracts are not what you’ll want to deal with.

Snow and Salt

The snow can be dangerous for your home in several ways. Snow typically comes when temperatures stay below freezing, and these low temperatures can freeze water in your pipes or gutters, potentially breaking them. Additionally, snow is heavy and can cause branches to fall on your home, or the snow can get heavy enough to cause buckling or holes.

The snow itself can be dangerous, but the way humans respond to this snow can also damage your home. People use road salt to remove snow and ice, but this chemical reaction can corrode your car or any other exposed metal in your home, including your garage door. One of the biggest causes of garage door rust is road salt, but you can prevent garage door rust by washing your garage door regularly and after it snows.

Heavy Winds

In addition to snow and rain, heavy winds are an inescapable force of nature. Any tornadoes or hurricanes will have a lot of rain associated with them, but it’s the wind that makes them especially dangerous. Heavy winds in these situations can reach dangerous speeds, around 40 miles per hour, with some storms even crossing the 100 miles per hour barrier. These winds will pull shingles off your roof, tear gutters away from your home, and bring trees and tree limbs down. There’s not much you can do to prepare for these winds other than brace your home and craft an emergency plan so that you and your family can stay safe.

The weather can damage your home in many different ways, but if you know the dangerous potential the weather has, you can better protect yourself against it. If you know the rain is coming, you can make sure your gutters are clean and pointed away from your home, and if you know the snow is coming, you can wrap your pipes and let your water drip. These little fixes help keep your home safe and working through the weather.

United Nations Video: Ukraine: Weapons Supply - Security Council Briefing | United Nations

Ukraine: Weapons Supply - Security Council Briefing | United Nations
Play Video: Ukraine: Weapons Supply - Security Council Briefing | United Nations


High Representative for Disarmament Affairs Izumi Nakamitsu today (14 Jun) reported to the Security Council that “the provision of military assistance and transfers of arms and ammunition to the Ukrainian Armed Forces have continued,” while states are “transferring, or planning to transfer,” weapons to the Russian armed forces “and that these weapons have been used in Ukraine.” Arms transferred to Ukraine include “heavy conventional weapons such as battle tanks, armoured combat vehicles, combat aircraft, helicopters, large calibre artillery systems, missile systems and uncrewed combat aerial vehicles, as well as remotely operated munitions, small arms and light weapons and their ammunition,” while the Russian Federation has reportedly received, “weapons such as uncrewed aerial vehicles, ballistic missiles and ammunition.” Nakamitsu warned about the “inherent risk of diversion of the equipment to unauthorized end users which raises serious concerns about the potential escalation of violence.” She said, “addressing the risk of diversion of weapons and ammunition is essential for preventing further instability and insecurity in Ukraine, the region, and beyond,” which requires “supply chain transparency and cooperation and information exchange between importing transit and exporting states.” Russian Ambassador Vasily Nebenzya said, “the US as part of its assistance to Ukraine is giving billions in loans which is to the benefit of its own military industrial complex, maintaining its super profits. An ocean away they are steering their European vassal and egging them on in their direct confrontation with Russia. As for Europe, which has lost even the modicum of the geopolitical independence it used to have, is blindly following the course dictated by Washington.” Nebenzya said, “do not believe the duplicitous promises of the organizers of the pow wow in Bürgenstock,” referring to the Summit on Peace in Ukraine, to be held in Bürgenstock Resort in Switzerland next week. He said, “this is just a primitive attempt to set another ultimatum for Russia, indirectly signing everyone who attends this closed door meeting up for that ultimatum.” The Russian Ambassador said, “the striking hypocrisy is blatantly obvious. How can you talk about peace if the organizers of this conference are on the one hand, convening the pseudo peaceful conference and on the other hand, sending growing supplies of weapons to kill, and at the same time giving the green light for the use of those weapons on Russian territory.” US Ambassador Robert A. Wood told the Council that the transfer of ballistic missiles and other arms and related material from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the Russian Federation “are clear violations of Security Council resolutions.” Wood said the United States has published material “showing a visual comparison of images from DPRK state media and images of missile debris from Kharkiv, confirming Russia used DPRK missiles against Ukraine.” For his part Ukrainian Ambassador Sergiy Kyslytsya said, “while spreading the nonsense that the possession of arms by the defending party makes peace elusive, Russia itself continues to receive weapons from rogue states like Iran and North Korea. Pyongyang has already reportedly sent to Russia more than 10,000 shipping containers that could hold nearly 5 million artillery shells.” Moreover, he said, “Russia resource to press-ganging foreign nationals into its occupation forces in Ukraine by threatening those already in Russia or deceiving those they recruit from abroad.”

Play Video: Ukraine: Surge of attacks by Russian forces on the Kharkiv area | United Nations


Attacks by Russian forces on the Kharkiv area of Ukraine have intensified over the past 2 months. Denise Brown briefs the media on the situation on the ground. A surge of attacks by Russian forces on the Kharkiv area of Ukraine is causing significant civilian casualties, as well as the destruction of homes and of crucial infrastructure, the top UN official in Ukraine said today, in a plea to not “normalize” the dire conditions for Ukrainian civilians. “There has been a very clear intensification of the war over the past couple of months,” said Denise Brown, UN Resident and Humanitarian Coordinator in Ukraine. “On my last trip to Ukraine two weeks ago, there were 12 sirens during the day and 12 explosions. There's a constant disruption to daily life in the city of Kharkiv,” she told journalists in Geneva. Russian military staged a fresh incursion on Kharkiv region on 10 May, seizing the town of Vovchansk and intensifying aerial attacks on Kharkiv city, Ukraine’s second largest urban centre, with some one million inhabitants fearing for their lives. A total of nearly ten million people - children included- are estimated by the World Health Agency to be at risk of acute Post-Traumatic Syndrome Disease (PTSD) in Ukraine. Meanwhile, some four million children across the country have had their education disrupted, and 600,000 of them are unable to access in-person school at all, according to UNICEF, the United Nations Children’s Fund. In the city of Kharkiv, the only way children can safely study is in the subterranean tunnels of the metro, Ms. Brown said, having witnessed this recently, when she visited the underground with the city’s mayor. “My initial reaction was that classrooms look like regular classrooms: full of children, teachers, full of the energy and enthusiasm that children have. My second thought was: ‘but this isn't normal.’ It's not normal that children have to study, underground.” Ms. Brown recently attended the Ukraine Recovery Conference in Berlin, where 14 countries and international organizations renewed their support for recovery, reconstruction and reform in Ukraine. Asked about her participation in the upcoming Swiss-organized Ukraine peace conference at the Bürgenstock resort this weekend, she clarified that the “UN is an observer, not a member state. So, whoever is going will be in listening mode.” She echoed the position of the UN Secretary-General to say that the Russian invasion of Ukraine is “a violation of the UN Charter.” “We hope for a just peace for Ukraine,” Ms. Brown said, “and as I've said repeatedly in my remarks, the rest of the world should not normalize the war in Ukraine.” After 28 months of war, the scale of humanitarian needs is vast. More than 32,000 civilian casualties, including 11,000 deaths, have been verified — but the real number is likely much higher. Thirty per cent of pre-war jobs have been erased and poverty increased from five to 25 per cent. Over 14.6 million people, 40 per cent of the population will need humanitarian assistance in 2024. The humanitarian community has appealed for US$3.1 billion to providing life-saving assistance to 8.5 million of the most vulnerable for 2024.

Noon briefing by Farhan Haq, Deputy Spokesperson for the Secretary-General. Highlights: Secretary-General Travel Lebanon/Israel Occupied Palestinian Territory Yemen Deputy Secretary-General Travel Security Council Sudan South Sudan Ethiopia Female Genital Mutilation International Days Financial Contribution Alan Bulkaty Guest SECRETARY-GENERAL TRAVEL A few moments ago, the Secretary-General participated in the outreach session of the G7 summit in Italy. As outlined in his press conference in Geneva, the Secretary-General carried a number of messages to the G7, notably on climate change, Artificial Intelligence, and reform of the international financial architecture He encouraged the G7 to step up and go further, faster in climate action by showing greater climate solidarity by finance, technology transfer, and so forth. He reiterated his call for real reform of the international financial architecture so that it better represents developing countries and responds to their needs. On Artificial Intelligence, he told the gathering that these technologies must support human rights, sustainable development, and benefit all humanity - instead of racing ahead of regulation, exacerbating power imbalances, further concentrating wealth and raising tensions and divisions. He highlighted the recommendations of his Advisory Panel on Artificial Intelligence in that regard. The Secretary-General is also scheduled to hold some bilateral meetings later in the day. LEBANON/ISRAEL On Lebanon and Israel, we remain very concerned by the recent escalation across the Blue Line and beyond. In her engagements this past week with key Lebanese and international interlocutors, the Special Coordinator for Lebanon, Jeanine Hennis-Plasschaert, conveyed her deep concern at the escalating situation across the Blue Line. The Special Coordinator calls on the parties to exercise maximum restraint and refrain from any action or statement that could further fuel tensions. She also stresses the urgency of ensuring the protection of civilians. UNIFIL peacekeepers remain on the ground conducting their mandated operational activities and working at all levels to de-escalate tensions. Since October, we have seen too many lives lost, families uprooted, and neighbourhoods destroyed. The danger of a wider conflagration is very real. We continue to engage with the parties and urge all actors to avoid hostile actions, return to a cessation of hostilities under the framework of Security Council Resolution 1701 (2006), and work towards a diplomatic solution.   OCCUPIED PALESTINIAN TERRITORY Turning to the situation in Gaza, the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says that displaced families continue to face dire conditions and significant challenges in accessing basic services. That’s according to multiple humanitarian assessments carried out over the past month. OCHA led two such assessments last week at informal displacement sites in Deir al Balah, where thousands of people are sheltering. Families there said that shelters are overcrowded and lack sanitation infrastructure. Food distributions are irregular, and residents reported a range of health issues, such as hepatitis A, skin diseases, and respiratory illnesses. Access to water is also critically low. Our partners working on water, sanitation and hygiene in Gaza report that critical infrastructure continues to sustain significant damage. They say the recent intensification of military operations has resulted in additional losses of key water and sanitation assets, including five water production wells in Jabalya, in the north, as well as two water wells and two desalination plants in Rafah, in the south. These partners estimate that over the past eight months, more than two-thirds of water and sanitation facilities and infrastructure in Gaza have been destroyed or damaged due to the conflict. Once again, OCHA underscores that humanitarian operations in Gaza must be fully facilitated and all impediments must be lifted. To give you just one example of these challenges – UNICEF’s spokesman, James Elder, said that one of the agency’s trucks carrying medicines and nutrition supplies for 10,000 children in Gaza was turned back on Wednesday – despite approvals for the mission. Mr. Elder says they were held for eight hours at checkpoints, and it took 13 hours to move just 40 kilometres.

More than 37,000 people have been killed, and many hundreds of thousands more injured or displaced in Israel's offensive against Hamas in Gaza, according to the Hamas-run health ministry. The war began after Hamas attacked Israel on 7 October, killing about 1,200 people and taking 251 others back to Gaza as hostages.

Play Video: New Hamas vs IDF Combat Footage From Across Gaza Strip


This dramatic footage from June shows that intense fighting continues in the Gaza Strip, even as international mediators continue to push for a truce. The IDF offensive in Rafah aims to eliminate the “remaining Hamas battalions” in the south. But this month also saw an assault on the central city of Deir El-Balah, while in the north Israel continues to trade blows with Hezbollah over the Lebanese border. Footage released by the military wing of Hamas shows that they are still limited to guerilla tactics. Mortars, sniper rifles and RPGs are used to strike isolated Israeli troops and vehicles. But Hamas has also made use of booby-trapped buildings, like this one in Rafah. The IDF takes advantage of air superiority where possible to eliminate threats. The Israelis are also prepared to take more risks to reclaim hostages. A recent raid on Nuseirat saw the return of four captives,but reportedly resulted in the death of 274 Palestinians, many of them women and children.

A late night vote in the Argentine Senate brought tension - inside the building, as well as outside.   Argentina’s Senate narrowly passed a controversial bill which would implement harsh austerity measures, privatise public firms and grant special powers to the president.    Senators voted 37 to 36 to approve the legislation, following 11 hours of heated debate.    Protesters clashed with police outside congress, as they urged lawmakers to reject the bill.    They fear that the bill will deepen unemployment and push up already high consumer prices.   At protests, demonstrators hurled Molotov cocktails and stones at police, who fired back with water cannons, tear gas, and rubber bullets.     The demonstrations were attended by unions, social movements and human rights organisations, as well as ordinary civilians.   Police reported at least 20 injured officers.   Over a dozen demonstrators were arrested.    At least five opposition lawmakers say they were hospitalised after being pepper sprayed by police.    The President offered radical change and a solution to Argentina’s long-running economic crisis when he was elected in December and has slashed the 50,000 public jobs, along with fuel and transport subsidies, but he has yet to pass a single piece of legislation throughout his first six months in office.    The legislation gives President Milei broad and controversial powers.   If the Senate approves the bills with modifications, it will be the first major victory for the right-wing leader, and lead him a step closer to delivering his ambitious libertarian agenda.    Subscribe here: http://bit.ly/ODNsubs TikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@ondemandnews Twitter: https://twitter.com/ODN Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ODN/ If you wish to purchase any of our clips for commercial use, please visit: http://www.itnproductions.co.uk/news/
