Storms Create More Business and Jobs In the Area

Sweeping storms have some homeowners picking up the phone and dialing for help with the aftermath clean-up.

The extra business from the storms has some companies hiring more people.

"We need as much help as we can get right now honestly," says Sam Lamb, a crew leader for the Lamb Tree and Stump Company.

For example, Lamb says just for one home they are clearing 23 trees from the property.

Lamb says because of the extra business they are hiring more workers.

"This wouldn't be a temporary job. If the person meets the quotas and does a good job, he may get hired as part of the crew," Lamb explains.

This company isn't the only business looking for more employees.

Hale Roofing has already hired one person and is looking for a four man crew.

"We need someone who knows what they are doing," Terry Hale, the owner, says.

The storm damage may be causing headaches for some homeowners, but for businesses like Lamb's and Hale's it means dollar signs.

"We do see our business increase after a bad wind storm or hail storm," Hale says, and Lamb states, "We are seeing about 100 phone calls a day."

Some of the harder hit areas will be getting funds from FEMA to help with the storm recovery efforts.

For those in Warren County and surrounding areas help is a phone call away.

"It's our job to help people in their time of need, and that's what we are trying to do in a timely manner," Hale says.
