Begin planning an emergency fund so that you have savings to offset the sting of an unexpected financial burden. A good rule of thumb is to put away at least 3 to 6 months worth of expenses to use as a safety net.
Also, don't forget that most standard homeowners insurance policies don't cover flooding. Just a few inches of flooding can lead to loss of thousands of dollars to your home or business. Most policies require a 30 days waiting period before the coverage becomes effective. Begin looking for a policy today to ensure you are covered before a flood risk approaches.
