The previous year in 2012 saw the third largest collection of named storms ever recorded. The list of significant storms and hurricanes include:
2014 is upon us and we don’t know if there will be a season like last year or it may escalate to repeat the same if not exceed the previous two year’s numbers. Homeowners should be prepared to have an emergency flood plan in case a severe one hits and would require water damage restorations.
One way to help with any unforeseeable expenses from such natural disasters is to purchase a flood insurance policy that would have a low deductible. The rate of the deductible can range from 500 and up, depending on a percentage of the total value of your building.
If you don’t have coverage with flood insurance when you actually have h20 deterioration from your living area, you’ll need to consult with a reputable technician to have your place inspected to assess the situation. The walls, ceilings, floors, furniture and other fixtures could all be broken beyond repair and need full replacements. People don’t realize that it only takes one major event to cause serious repercussions on your livelihood so why take a chance and not have better preparation?
Download a flood app onto your mobile device which has specific instructions and steps to help you get back onto your feet if you have the unfortunate instance of being hit with floodwaters.
Another word of advice is to have an emergency first-aid kit nearby and available in the event that injuries happen in the weather aftermath.
