Review insurance policies, including windstorm, flood and homeowner's policies. If you are a renter, be sure your policy covers damage from a storm. Take an inventory of possessions, particularly valuables. Take photos or videos of each room in case you need to identify lost property or document damage. Have your documents with you to present to insurance company representatives after a hurricane. Keeping them together in a waterproof container or bag will help keep them safe. Some companies have Mobile Response Units that move into the damaged area after the storm passes.
