Climate Extremes and Metal Buildings for Virginia

While Virginia ordinarily enjoys a mild climate, don’t be deceived. The weather can turn deadly at any time.

The first recorded hurricane in what is now the United States occurred in August 1635. It is believed to have hit in present day Virginia. In September 1821, one of the most violent hurricanes on record pounded the commonwealth. The October 1897 hurricane drove Norfolk tides eight feet above normal and lasted a horrifying 60 hours. In September 1944, sustained hurricane force winds at Cape Henry reached 134 m.p.h., while wind gusts were estimated at 150 m.p.h.

Hurricanes dish out punishment in Virginia even when they do not make landfall in the commonwealth. Hurricanes coming across Gulf States often pass through Virginia, producing gale-force winds, dumping vast amounts of rain, and spawning deadly tornadoes. Virginia felt the devastating effects of massive Hurricane Sandy, though far from the point of landfall.

Even in less severe weather, Virginians often face powerful and deadly thunderstorms.

Pre-engineered RHINO steel buildings for Virginia will withstand howling winds, crushing snow loads, and crashing lightning far better than other construction methods.
