Inventory list now -- not after the storm
Before we get too far into hurricane season, it is a good idea for you to make an inventory of your possessions. If you do not have the time, you can take a video camera and do "walk-through" of your home. Video all the rooms and the possessions you have within the rooms. If you have receipts for the high-priced items in your house (like a flat-screen TV, computer, washing machine / dryer, or other appliances), keep them in a safe place so that you can have them available if you need to present evidence of the value of those items at a later date.
