Disaster Preparation

From Iowa Legal Aid: In Iowa, natural disasters happen every year. Ice storms and blizzards can occur in the winter. Tornadoes, severe storms, and flooding can materialize in the spring, summer, and fall. Often these disasters descend on us without any warning. In a matter of minutes, your house and belongings can be destroyed. Therefore, it is important to plan ahead for these disasters. The more you can prepare ahead for a disaster, the easier it will be for you to recover. Check out their website for ways to be prepared.
