Beware of storm scams
When a severe storm rumbles through a community, most often, friends, family and neighbors help pick up the pieces left behind.
Storms can leave a mess for homeowners to clean up, especially if there was damage from hail, straight-line winds or tornados.
But storms don't always bring out the best in people. Damage left behind - whether it's hail damage to a roof or siding blown off from strong winds - is a haven for scammers.
