Date:12/30/2012

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) December 30, 2012

Hurricane Sandy delivered a mighty punch, but did not knockout the resilient residents in the hard hit areas of the storm. Houses were toppled, streets were flooded and electricity was disrupted.

Some people lost their lives because of Hurricane Sandy and many others were injured and had to receive medical attention. People were left emotionally scarred and with the enormous task of rebuilding their lives.

Measure the billions of dollars in property damage and haul off the tons of debris, but how to restore families, businesses and neighborhoods?

After Hurricane Katrina, some valuable lessons were learned about the forces of nature. no one can not stop natural disasters from occurring, but lets mitigate the damages by better planning and preparation.

After The Flood - Lessons Learned From Hurricane Sandy

1. Heed the Official Evacuation Warnings

When the governor or other public officials warn the public it is not safe to stay, heed those warnings. Unfortunately, many people did not pack up and get away from the storm's ominous path. The result was that some people lost their lives and others were injured. People were stranded without electricity, running water or food. Help could not get to some people because the roads were inaccessible.

2. Have A Home Survival Kit – Food, Water, Fuel

When a major storm hits, normal services can be out for several days or longer. There may be gas shortages and utility crews might not be able to restore electricity and water for two or more weeks. Homeowners should consider buying a generator and maybe a chainsaw to cut up fallen trees. It is important to keep plenty of bottled water and non-perishable on hand. If anyone takes prescription medications, make sure to have an adequate supply.

3. Have a Evacuation Plan

Do not rely on someone to come and help evacuate communities. Instead, plan an escape well in advance of the impending storm. Some may be able to stay with friends or family members in a safer location. Otherwise, check into a hotel or, as a last resort, go to a nearby shelter.

4. Adequate Insurance

Many homeowners found out that they did not have the proper insurance coverage. Sit down with an insurance agent and evaluate all policys. There is a need for a special flood insurance policy to cover water damage from rising water.

5. Putting The Pieces Back Together – Restoring the Flood Damage

Bob Condit, the owner of Floodmasters in Atlanta Georgia says, “I have seen firsthand both the financial and emotional devastation that a flood disaster can cause. To the homeowner it can seem so hopeless to try and clean up the flood damage. We take homeowners by the hand and help them realize that there is hope and there is help. It takes time, but flood damage is repaired, lives are re-built, and soon things are back to normal.”

No one is able to prevent natural disasters from occurring, but lets learn from the past, and be better prepared for the future.
