According to CNN, “Hurricane Michael is poised to slam Florida’s Panhandle by Wednesday afternoon, threatening dangerous storm surges to low-lying areas ill-equipped to handle them — and officials are urging people to get out of the way now.
Michael, spinning in the Gulf of Mexico as a Category 2 storm Tuesday morning, is expected to strengthen even more before making landfall Wednesday, possibly as a Category 3.
Florida Gov. Rick Scott called Michael a “monstrous storm” that could bring “total devastation” in and around the Panhandle area.
Hurricane Michael is forecast to be the most destructive storm to hit the Florida Panhandle in decades,” Scott said Tuesday morning.”
Think of the Details
Businesses in areas that get impacted by natural disasters often do have a disaster recovery plan, but one of the details that often gets overlooked, is who will answer the phones when you or your staff can not?
Natural Disasters Are Unpredictable
You should have a plan for a hurricane that may cause you to lose touch with your customers or clients.
A disaster recovery plan that includes a way for your customer/clients to be able to contact you, ensures that you can continue providing services to your customers and clients in the event an emergency happens.
