2019 Atlantic Hurricane Names Released
2019 Atlantic Storm Names
Do you ever wonder why hurricanes are named? It stared off in the mid 1900's when meteorologists realized that the general public cared much more, and payed attention to, storms that were given names.
It makes it easier to reference one storm over another. In the beginning the U.S. National Hurricane Center started naming storms in the early 1950's, but now the task has been handed to the World Meteorological Organization.
So when does a storm receive a name? Tropical storms are given names when they display a rotating circulation pattern and have wind speeds of 39 MPH. If a tropical storm increases to a hurricane they keep their same name. Smaller storms including tropical depressions do not receive names.
Here are the 2019 hurricane names for the Atlantic hurricane season:

IICRC S500 Standard For Professional Water Damage Restoration
SERVPRO of Clear Lake is committed to being the best in the industry. We take restoring your home and business back to its preloss conditions seriously. We know that damages to one of your largest investments can be a stressful time, but we are here to help you get back to normal again.
Our office is dedicated to following the industry standards set by the Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certifications. We study and utilize the S500 as the standard guide for performing remediation services.
The S500 provides practical standards and specific steps for water damage restoration. The S500 is a foundation of best practices for proper structural drying and water mitigations ervices. The standard was developed with a wide array of providers having their voice and giving opinions and direction on what the standard practices should be.
Included in these groups were restoration professionals, scientists, trade associations serving the restoration community, chemists, cleaning and restoration training schools and members of the insurance industry.
The IICRC S500 training is a two-part format. The first half is the standard itself outlining the details of the standard restoration process. The second part is the reference guide to better understand the concepts.
For more information on the S500 read the Consensus Body White Paper on Airmover Calculations in Structural Drying Projects.
The SERVPRO team standing behind our booth at the 2019 Houston Insurance Day trade show!
SERVPRO had the wonderful opportunity to attend Houston Insurance Day trade show in the heart of Houston! Over 1800 independent insurance agents and insurance professionals attended to network and showcase the many services we offer. SERVPRO had the opportunity to educate insurance professionals, that we work with on a daily basis, on how the restoration industry helps reduce insured losses and get homeowners back into their homes faster with mitigation and restoration services. The event allowed us to educate insurance adjusters and independent insurance agents of Houston and the Town & Country Houston Galleria area.
The Independent Insurance Agents of Houston group hosted 133 exhibitors showcasing insurance companies offering casualty, auto and life insurance packages and unique vendors to the insurance industry including water extraction, water mitigation and structural drying vendors like SERVPRO. IIAH also showcased their keynote speaker, Chad Prather, with his hilarious and unique take on professional development and personal motivation.
Additionally, the seminars were extremely informative! We took home helpful tools that will last us a lifetime. We are looking forward to next year's tradeshow! If you’re interested and want to learn more about the insurance industry contact the Independent Insurance Agents of Houston website at www.IIAH.org.

Our Recovery Efforts During Hurricane Florence
SERVPRO of Clear Lake on the scene during the storm disaster
In September of 2018, Hurricane Florence swept through the Carolinas causing catastrophic damage. The powerful hurricane caused 20 to 30 inches of rainfall which resulted in life-threatening flooding.
During this difficult time, SERVPRO of Clear Lake was there to offer our assistance and service. We traveled the streets of North Carolina restoring and mitigating all water damages. In many cases, we moved the victim’s belongings and furniture out of the home and then performed full demolition on the property. The demo consisted of removing baseboards, shoe mold and drywall. Additionally, due to heavy odors, several carpets and padding were removed. Lastly, we left multiple pieces of specialized equipment such as air movers and dehumidifiers to ensure all properties were fully dry.
When there's a storm, SERVPRO of Clear Lake promises to be faster to any size disaster. You can rely on us to always provide excellent immediate service to all of our clients.
300- Acre Marina and Skyscraper Complex
A view of the 300- Acre Marina and Skyscraper Complex
SERVPRO is excited for the future 300-acre skyscraper complex! The skyscraper is located in Kingwood’s Woodland Hills Dr around 2 existing lakes! The master plan is to link the 2 bodies of water together and transform them into marinas. The marina’s will feature docks, pedestrian paths and outdoor amusements.
In addition to the marinas, this complex will have somewhere for you to swim, watch movies, eat and socialize. Their plan is to incorporate a floating swimming pool, a floating cinema/theatre, a restaurant-cafe and a lounge area. The absolute best part is, it's all on top of the water, thanks to custom-made platforms.
The complex is packed with amazing activities, we imagine it will be a new family and friend favorite!
The concern of Kingwood Residents
A view of the 300-acre complex
The recent announcement of the high-end marina has some Kingwood residents apprehensive. Although, the new 300-acre complex is extremely exciting news, there are some concerning facts. The complex is being built on a flood-prone area of land.
A new theatre, restaurant and lounge sounds amazing, but is it worth jeopardizing Kingwood’s amazing forest identity? This is the question being raised by many Kingwood residents. Their fear is the marina will increase flooding and potentially harm the community’s forest.
Residents threw a public meeting at the Kingwood Community Center to voice their opinion and concerns about the project. Additionally, comments submitted before Jan. 29 can be sent to the United States Army Corps of Engineers and the texa Commission on Environmental Quality.
The excitement for kingwood’s 300- Acre Marina and Skyscraper Complex
The 300- Acre Marina and Skyscraper Complex
The development of the 300- Acre Marina and Skyscraper Complex has sparked a lot of conversation! While some people are apprehensive towards the new complex, others are very excited for all the complex is bringing to the Kingwood community.
In addition to the complex having a A floating pool, cinema/theatre, restaurant-cafè and a lounge area, the complex is also built to help clean the surrounding waters. Due to vegetation being planted in the waterborne platforms, it assists in cleaning the water.
Moreover, If you have a boat or jet ski, you’re in luck! There are 700 spots available for boats and 220 platforms for jet skis. There will also be wavy mall promenade at the entrance of the complex and close to the shopping center.
SERVPRO thinks this is going to be an amazing complex!
