This week’s storms could bring more clean up crews to neighborhoods in northeast Ohio. Unfortunately, scammers could be waiting to take advantage of residents dealing with damage to their property.

Tuesday night’s storms hit Sofia Dougherty’s Cleveland Heights neighborhood pretty hard. Tree limbs came crashing down and blocked the road. The electricity went out as well.

Tree limbs scattered across North St. James Parkway and a tree even fell on a car.

“Thank God nobody was hurt,” Dougherty said.

As residents clean up, they need to choose their repair companies carefully, or the Better Business Bureau warns they could get scammed.

“You want to watch out for someone who comes out knocking on your door, offering you a free roof, a one time deal, you have to sign the contract now or the price goes up,” said Sue McConnell, President and CEO of the Better Business Bureau Serving Greater Cleveland.
