Winter Storm Warning In Sierra: Preparing Your Facility To Prevent Damage


LAKE TAHOE — A Winter Storm Warning went into effect for the Sierra Thursday morning ahead of the arriving atmospheric river with the mountains facing up to eight more feet of snow from the storm. 

The warning will remain in effect through Sunday morning for the Sierra and the southern Cascades. People in those mountain areas are advised to be prepared for chain controls, major travel delays, and likely road closures. Winds during the height of the initial storm Thursday into early Friday could gust at speeds 50-70 mph.

Tips To Prepare Your Facility For Snow Damage

The First Line Of Defense Is Your Roof

It’s easy to forget about the roof of a house, but it’s one of the most important things to keep in mind. Your roof is your first line of defense against winter weather, so it needs to be taken care of. If you don’t have a system that keeps rain and snow out, they can get inside and cause damage to your walls and ceilings.

Check All Gutters For Leaks And Blockages

Next, check all gutters for leaks and blockages before winter arrives. If there are any problems with them, take measures now before more damage occurs during cold temperatures or heavy snowfall later this year!

Look Over Window Frames

Also, look over window frames; some may be loose or cracked due to age or weather conditions, so now would be an excellent time to find them before they start cracking further.

You may also want to consider replacing windows altogether if their condition has deteriorated beyond repair already–this could save money because replacing just one pane isn’t as costly as replacing an entire window unit!


Winter preparation starts long before the first snowflake falls. Overgrown bushes and shrubs may also require trimming, particularly if they are isolated and subjected to the full force of the wind. If a winter storm completely shuts down the city, make sure you have enough emergency supplies on hand. If anyone in your home is treating a long-term condition, you may also want to stock up on important medications.
