Demand for Storm-Related Businesses in Tennessee Increasing

April 2, 2012

Bad weather means good business for some entrepreneurs in Middle Tennessee.

The area was hit with tornadoes in late February that were followed by severe storms, golf-ball size hail and more tornadoes. Afterward, National Storm Shelters in Smyrna couldn’t answer phone lines quick enough. Meanwhile, waiting rooms at Lyk-Nu Collision Centers in Donelson and Lebanon were full as customers waited to get their cars repaired.

Business owners told The Nashville Ledger that demand rose sharply for their services after the storms pounded the state.

And with national weather forecasters predicting the South will see more severe weather than usual over the next couple of years, demand is increasing for storm-related services.
