Cold Air Funnels

As I was watching the news Sunday night they began talking about cold air funnels and my immediate thought was "I'm glad that is not where I live;" That's when I realized I was watching a local news station. I knew very little about what the cold air funnels were and what they could potentially do. So I decided to google what cold air funnels are and how they develop, which I'm sure many others did as well. I went to many different websites and all of them stated one very specific fact; Cold air funnels rarely touch the ground to become a tornado. However, even if they never become a tornado, the storm they are apart of can still cause damage to a home. With a proper working roof rain isn't a problem at all, but if a leak goes unnoticed that is when the damage can begin. Overtime the small leak can turn into a much bigger leak which can eventually lead to mold. Be sure to check your ceiling after a heavy rainstorm to see if there is a possible leak.
