Learn to be better prepared for natural disasters before they hit your finances. Join us March 9 to learn how to plan ahead for natural disasters.
The U.S. had a roller coaster year for natural disasters in 2021. There was a historic deep freeze that took over Texas and much of the South. There was a record heat wave and drought in the West. Then, Hurricane Ira ran rampant from the Gulf Coast to the Northeast. And finally, devastating tornado outbreaks tore through Central and Southern U.S. towns.
But those are just a handful of the 20 different weather and climate disasters that hit last year. They cost the U.S. over $1 billion each. Over the last five years, weather disasters have cost the U.S. nearly $750 billion. And it doesn’t look like things are slowing down either. Colorado State University is predicting that 2022 will have slightly above-average activity with 13-16 named storms, 6-8 hurricanes, and 2-3 major hurricanes.
That’s why Consolidated Credit is here to help with a free webinar “The Weather and Your Wallet.” You’ll learn everything you need to know about being prepared so you can weather any storm.

Understand the threats, prepare accordingly
Natural disasters can strike at any time and from anywhere, so it’s always best to be prepared. Whether you live in a hurricane or flood zone, a wildfire zone, or in tornado alley, it’s important to plan for any potential damage to your wallet. A little planning can go a long way!
How to weather the storm
There are three ways to make sure your wallet is ready for an impending natural disaster. You’ll learn more about each of these in the free webinar on March 9.
Make sure you have all your documents are in a safe place ahead of time. Gather up all your important documents likes insurance policies, passports, birth certificates, etc., and keep them in a safe place. Also, take photos of all your belongings for insurance purposes.
An even better method of preparedness is to store all your documents digitally. Get them all scanned and saved on a cloud service so you can access them at any time. But also make sure to keep print copies in a safe place. You can keep them in a waterproof container in case there are electrical issues that may keep you from accessing your documents online.
Gone are the days of using MapQuest to print your evacuation route. But even with GPS systems being readily available in your car or pocket, it may be smart to map out an evacuation route prior to an emergency occurrence. You should also prepare an emergency kit that contains essentials and any cash you may need in case credit card readers aren’t working.
