Expect Thunderstorms over Father's Day
Father’s Day is normally reserved for grilling steaks and enjoying the beach, but a stormy weekend will put a damper on things. According to ABC 13, Houston and Galveston should expect around a foot of rainfall. That’s not a large amount of rain, but homeowners should prepare just in case. The city recommends:
- Cleaning your gutters: Leaves and debris can clog your gutters, causing damage to your roof and home.
- Cleaning local drainage: If you noticed anything blocking drainage, this is a serious problem and can result in your entire neighborhood flooding. Clean your gutters or call the city right away for help.
- Have a generator ready: Chances are this will just be some simple wet weather, but the power may go out. Have a generator on standby just in case.
- Storm Insurance: Make sure your policy is up to date. Consider your car, business, loss of rent, jewelry and electronics when purchasing insurance. Also make sure you have enough coverage, and update this yearly.
After the Storm
After you take account of you and your family, start documenting all property damage. Take photos, make lists, and then contact your insurer. Assuming you purchased enough coverage, they should be able to cover the full value of your damages.
