Benjamin Franklin once said that only two things in life are certain, death and taxes. Well, we’d like to amend that quote and add a third certainty to life: catastrophes.
Whether you flip on the news and hear about a hurricane or earthquake across the country, or look out in your backyard and see the effects yourself, catastrophes are happening every day.
Billion-dollar Disasters in 2022
Since 1980, there has been an increase in billion-dollar losses all across the United States. In 2022, these billion-dollar disasters were the result of all kinds of natural disasters, like deadly tornadoes, massive hail storms, destructive Derechos and costly hurricanes.
As of September 2022, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) reports that the U.S. has suffered 15 weather and climate disasters exceeding $1 billion in damages and collectively totaling $29.3 billion.
Unfortunately, the frequency and severity of these disasters are not an anomaly. “2022 is the eighth consecutive year with 10 or more billion-dollar weather and climate-related disasters” (Source: Climate Central).
From 2017 to 2021, “there were just 18 days on average between billion-dollar disasters.” In comparison, there were approximately 82 days between billion-dollar disasters in the 1980s (Source: Climate Central).
With less time between disasters and an increasing threat in severity, it’s more important than ever for homeowners and business owners to be prepared to withstand any storm that comes their way.
How To Prepare for Disaster
If you’ve come to our side and agreed that yes, catastrophes should be added to Benjamin Franklin’s list of three certainties in life, you may be asking what can you do now to prepare for the inevitable.
By analyzing historical data, creating an emergency preparedness plan and communicating that plan to employees and stakeholders you’ll be three steps ahead of where you were this time last year.
However, if you want to take it a step further and ensure that there is minimal disruption to your business and that you can get back to business as quickly as possible after a disaster, it’s important to partner with experts in the field.
