How Weather Conditions Can Cause Firework Damage
How can the weather affect your fireworks and create a dangerous situation on the upcoming Fourth of July holiday? If a storm is approaching and causes a severe gust a wind it can affect the direction of the firework and the sparks causing the embers or smoke to be blown towards houses or even the audience that are in the area. This can also increase the risk of fires to buildings and landscaping. It can even cause injuries to people. So, it is important to be aware of the direction of the wind before lighting the fireworks.
Even though Northeast Ohio has had rain recently, you still need to be aware and check the ground to see overly dry and subject to catching on fire. So, when setting up your fireworks display be aware of the condition of the fallout area in order to lessen the risk of a fire igniting.
