Hurricane Preparedness

September 11, 2018

Last year, the Texas coast was devastated by hurricane Harvey. Harvey caused an estimated $125 billion in damage. Approximately 336,000 people were left without electricity, and tens of thousands required rescue. Throughout the state, 103 people died in storm-related incidents, and an estimated 30,000 people were displaced.

Unfortunately, there is nothing we can do to prevent a natural disaster, but what we can do is be prepared and be safe. You should designate an evacuation plan and a family meeting spot, before the first hurricane warning is issued to the Texas coast. Remember that it is necessary to evacuate as soon as possible when authorities tell you to. Never walk, swim or drive through flood water.

Additionally, you should build emergency kits with all the essentials to survive at least three days. Some of the essentials you should add to your emergency kit are:

  • Water (3 to 5 gallons)
  • Flashlights (one per family member)
  • Battery Powered Radio
  • Important Documents
  • Sleeping Bags
  • A change of clothes (one per family member)
  • Extra batteries
  • 72-hour supply of food
  • Candles
  • Pocket Knife
  • Cash
  • Toilet paper
  • Hand sanitizer
  • Trash bags
  • Oral care
  • First Aid Kit
  • Medications
  • Pet supplies and food

There are a few steps you can do to protect your property such as decluttering drains and gutters and installing check valves in plumbing to prevent backups. Consider hurricane shutters. To obtain more information on hurricane preparedness, visit Ready.gov.

The last step to protect your wellbeing after a natural disaster is to review insurance policies and keep the number of a lawyer who can help you with a property damage or injury claim. It is not uncommon for valid insurance policyholders to be to be denied the proper coverage the policy should entitle them. Insurance Companies are experienced at underpaying claims, to make a higher profit. It is in the insurance company’s interest to charge you as much as they can in premiums, while avoiding paying as many claims as possible. They design a business based on this concept by creating confusing policies, while denying as many claims as possible.
