Here’s are a few tips you can take to be best prepared for severe weather:

  1. Plan Ahead – Being prepared could mean the difference between life and death. Know where your nearest shelter is and map out the quickest routes to get there.
  2. Up In the Cloud – Make sure to back up all of your important digital files on a cloud-based server to make sure that you can access them later in that event that something happens to your computer.
  3. Stock Up – Emergency supplies such as non-perishable foods, water, batteries for flashlights and radios, medicine should all be on the top of your list of things you’ll need.
  4. Gas & Cash – Make sure you fill up your car on gas in the event that fuel doesn’t become available in your area. Also, consider how you will access your funds in the event of a multi-day power outage in your area. Play it safe and have cash in hand.
  5. Be Claim Ready – Get your insurance in order and protect all of your paperwork. This is necessary to have your storm damage claim started immediately after the storm has hit.
