Hurricane Sandy Worries

For about half a second I was thanking my lucky stars that I’m in Nigeria not America now that Hurricane Sandy is tearing up the east coast, but then my thoughts went to all my friends and my family on the east coast of the USA and I began to panic.

Please be safe everyone!!! Especially Pea, Mellowyel, Pat B, Chimdi, Chioma, Donli, Dutch, Chimahe, Nkiru, Ada, everyone at school, everyone at grad school, everyone just loitering on the east coast.

And I spoke to my Grandma who lives on the east coast too and she’s doing well.

If I could give you all one piece of advice where preparing for a hurricane is concerned, it would be to make sure that you have a home insurance policy that includes coverage for bad weather! A storm like this can bring a whole lot of damages along with it. For example, in the aftermath, you might notice that your basement has flooded due to the hurricane. In order to prepare for that, you should start searching online for “flood restoration near me” services now itself, so that when the damage occurs you can at least rest assured that you have a way of getting it fixed.

Replacing your items and repairing your property can be expensive in the aftermath of a hurricane, but if you have taken out appropriate insurance, then you might be able to make a claim towards covering these costs. You might even be able to invest in stronger roofing materials like those discussed at Roofing Insights, or stronger windows in order to be prepared for the next bad storm.

If you have taken out insurance, you might just want to get your electrical panels and wirings checked for any kind of damage that it might have incurred during the storm. It is always a prudent option to ensure that the electrical circuits are still in working condition and for that, you might have to call in the experts similar to the electrical repair options in Taylor (or anywhere in your vicinity), to get a fair idea about the damage incurred by you financially and get it repaired, on time.

No one wants to think too much about their home or possessions being damaged by a storm but it is an inevitability sometimes. Taking out home insurance can protect your property and belongings in a worst-case scenario. Temped to discover how home insurance could help you during the aftermath of a storm?

Stay safe everyone!

    I am currently living in the east coast but 90% of my family and friends are on the east coast, so I was terrified and making sure everyone had water and food for days. Thank God everyone is okay. Blessed.
