There’s a storm of epic proportions approaching the East Coast. Are people prepared to weather this storm and possible catastrophe that’s expected to hit early next week? People say they’re prepared until it happens. No matter where you live, there’s a risk. Fires, snow, torrential rain, damaging hail or wind, tornados, hurricanes, earthquakes, and tsunamis. You should always have a plan of action. One easy step in this plan is to document your belongings. This can be done by taking pictures or a video on your house, room by room. I would recommend a video over photos, as some things can be missed while taking photos. Keep those photos or video on a flash drive or external hard drive and put that flash drive in a place with other important documents that you can grab in a moment’s notice. When a tragedy occurs, you don’t want to think about what to take with you. You want it all to be in one accessible place—somewhere that you get to it quickly. Once the tragedy is over, it’s going to be hard to think about what’s missing. You’re probably flustered, devastated, and all belief that you’ll be thinking clearly has flown out the window. That flash drive is a lifeline after a tragic event.
Something else you can do is upload any important documents onto that same flash drive. That way, you have everything you could potentially need after dealing with a loss in one place.
Another thing to think about is where you’re going to be staying during and after the storm. Do you have a friend or family you could ride out the storm with? Is there a particular hotel you would feel safest at? None of these actions are a 100% effective, but they can at least help to ease the pain of loss or confusion during or after the tragedy.
This next week is going to tough for people on the East Coast. My heart goes out them. They’re going to have a hurricane, strong winds, rain, and snow—all at once. Newscasts are calling this the “Frankenstorm.” According to 9News sources, this storm could cost close to a billion dollars. The electric companies are already preparing for this storm. People that were on vacation or had days off are being called back to work so they can be prepared. They don’t want to get caught with their pants down as in past years.
This storm may hit home for a lot of us—we either know people or have family that live on the East Coast. People are going to be watching the news closely to stay up-to-date. I think this is going to be the number one topic of discussion over the next week. With that said, don’t get caught with your pants down—be prepared for what may come. Don’t wait until it’s happening—give the Leinweber Insurance Agency a call now at 303-558-9880 so we can help you prepare for possible future tragedies.
