Recovering and Returning Home After a Natural Disaster

When a natural disaster strikes, survival is often the first priority for many people, and rightly so. High winds, floodwaters, and wildfires are all incredibly dangerous for those stuck in their wrath. However, the dangers that these natural disasters present don’t always end when the storm moves on, the waters calm, or the last smouldering ember is snuffed out.

It’s important to understand what you should do in the event of a natural disaster, but it’s equally important to understand what you should do when you return home after a natural disaster. These events can sometimes leave lasting threats in or around your home, and knowing what you might encounter and how to respond to it is a necessity for anyone who is recovering from a natural disaster.
