CONTACT YOUR INSURANCE AGENT IMMEDIATELY: Call your agent and notify them of the disaster and find out details on your coverage and ask how long you have to file a claim.  Be sure they understand that you are relying on them to communicate any and all pertinent information and for assistance getting your claim filed and approved.

TAKE PICTURES & VIDEO OF THE DAMAGE: Be sure to take pictures and video footage if possible and safe. You will want proof of what your property looked like immediately after the damage occurred. Be sure to create back up copies of all pictures and videos as well.
