Assessing the Aftermath: What Comes After the Storm
With the arrival of storm season, keep in mind the importance of having a plan to deal with the aftereffects of any serious weather that strikes your area. In some instances, the aftermath can be more shocking than the storm itself. Though there is no way to guarantee that your property can weather every storm that comes its way, having a plan can make a big difference.
Ensure that your home and belongings are taken care of with one of our insurance plans. Contact us for a quote.
Watch Your Step
The dangers resulting from a storm do not decrease in severity once said storm passes. Flooding, downed power lines and piles of debris can make traversing storm-affected areas extremely dangerous. It is important to always wait until your neighborhood is declared safe before returning to assess damages. Avoid flooded roadways or weakened bridges on your way home and always make sure your footing is firm.
Once at home, keep an eye out for sharp debris while assessing the damage inside. Wear proper footwear and use flashlights in areas with little light. Check all of your appliances and make sure gas and water lines are intact. Also, remember to avoid using tap water until officials deem it safe. If you see downed power lines, avoid and report them.
