Tips on protecting your car during storms

Posted: Updated:

With recent thunderstorms passing throughout our area, plenty of cars have been damaged.  

Al McGaharan of Ed Schmidt Wreck Center shared some helpful tips on what drivers need to know when protecting your car from dangerous storms.
  • Do not try to get into your car and move it during a thunderstorm. It's not worth the risk.
  • Do not try to pull off on the side of the road while driving in a storm. It is not only a hassle to do, but it makes you an easy target for oncoming traffic.  
  • If your car has been damaged, make sure you inspect for further damage. Clean and inspect it from all different angles.
