This information is incorrectThis information is incorrect as having previous personal experience of being in charge of determining the raising, lowering and type of flag to be posted on a military instillation I can tell you that during inclement weather an all weather flag is the only type of flag that can be flown. If you do not own this type of flag then yes you would take it down to prevent damage. There not a need to remove an all weather flag from display during rain or such. however there are some additional things that you must be aware of if you take it down at night. These include having a place that the flag can hang in the proper manner within your house or office in which it can dry to prevent mold and mildew from building up on the flag before being folded. However as long as you make sure that the flag is not damaged it is in no way disrespectful to have the American flag fly during a storm. I also advise to use common sense in certain cases for instance if you live in an area that is prone to hurricanes and this is the type of storm you are questioning then bring the flag inside for this is one case in which you cannot guarantee the safety of the flag. I hope that this helps shine some light on the subject.
