Your safety is most important, so after a storm be sure your utilities are safe to use and water is potable. After that, inspect the perimeter of your home noting and taking pictures of any present damage to siding, roofing, windows, decks, fences, garage, outbuildings, and landscaping. Inside your home, make sure appliances are working properly and look for signs of water leaks and structural damage (such as warped floors or doorways). Also note any damage caused to personal possessions, such as electronics and furniture.
