  Before The Event     During The Event     After The Event     Resources  

After the Event
  • Inspect your property closely and pay particular attention to downed power lines, broken water lines, etc.
  • Photograph and document damage before you start to clean up.
  • Secure your structure and buildings. Make any necessary repairs to secure them from the weather and intrusion.
  • Stand up and re-stake all plant material as quickly as possible to prevent burning from lying in the sun. Irrigate to flush away any salt residue. The closer to the coast you are, the more important this is. The force of hurricane winds can carry salt spray for miles. Replant any material needing it. Prune to correct any damage.
  • If necessary, notify disaster assistance agencies of your needs. If you have crop insurance, you may qualify for disaster assistance or low cost loans. Contact the appropriate agency as soon as possible for instruction.
  • Notify your customers of your situation as quickly as possible. Let them know how well you survived the storm and when you anticipate servicing their accounts.
