Preparing for Unexpected Weather Conditions
Flooding, tornados, and here recently, Hurricane Irene–these are some effects of the extreme weather conditions experienced this year from Mother Nature. How prepared are we to deal with occurrences that cause extreme water damage and loss of property?
Many homeowners who do not live in flood-prone areas are now considering purchasing flood insurance due to the unprecedented weather-related conditions that could cause water damage.
Flash floods alone have caused flooded basements and homes. Tornadoes have destroyed and flattened neighborhoods and businesses. Here recently, Hurricane Irene was responsible for the evacuation of millions of people along the East Coast. Several deaths occurred, flooded communities, fallen trees damaging power lines and property, widespread power outages for over a week.
Now that the worst is over, there is still a tremendous amount of work to be done for those with damaged and flooded property.
Homeowners and property owners can prepare for some unforeseen catastrophes that might occur by knowing what to do and who to call when an emergency such as this strikes.
