Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast yesterday bringing tidal surges, high winds, rain, and even snow to much of the Northeast. For homeowners, that means floods, power outages, splintered trees and structural damage.
This week we’ve written about earthquakes, hurricanes and now flooding. Although earthquakes made an exception of where they typically strike this week, with the epicenter of a 5.8 quake centering just outside our nation’s capital, all natural disasters tend to occur in only specific parts of the country.
Well, all except one…Flooding.
What a week for natural disasters here on the East Coast. After a 5.8 earthquake hit outside Washington D.C., Hurricane Irene is expected to hit North Carolina this morning and work its way up the coast today and throughout the weekend.
Hurricanes at their worst can cause damage to life and property on a catastrophic scale, but fortunately they can be predicted and prepared for.
We love to share ways that our readers (and we) can save some money. One of those ways, according to financial experts Ken and Daria Dolan, is to review your various insurance policies in order to make sure you are not paying for coverage you don’t need. Since home, life, and car insurance policies are increasing now by about 3-4%, consumers can save hundreds of dollars without ever compromising their coverage.
