After the Storm | The Role of your Association After a Natural Disaster

HOA | Condo Emergency and Safety, HOA | Condo Insurance

There is an eerie quietness that can often be felt after a disaster like a hurricane of flash flooding, the time after the rain has stopped but the sun still hasn't returned. Returning to business as usual after your community has faced a natural disaster can be difficult, the responsibilities can seem endless but there are some steps you can take to ensure that your community is as strong and thriving as before.

2020 has been a challenging year in every regard, not the least of which has been related to the Atlantic Hurricane Season, the most active since 2005. With over 23 named storms, including eight hurricanes and over 24 tropical or subtropical cyclones, it's easy to see why so many are patiently waiting for the storm season to come to a close. Officially over on November 30th, the damage done to many communities will continue to affect homeowners and HOA board members alike. We've previously discussed implementing a disaster plan for your community but what comes after the storm can be just as important.
