Save all receipts from Hurricane prep purchases; they may be covered.

Evacuation costs may also be covered (gas, hotel, etc.). Start keeping a tab of all your expenses.

Do not throw away all your damaged belongings before taking extensive photos and videos.

Make sure to capture just how badly damaged they are. Try to hold onto the damaged items until the insurance adjuster comes out to inspect. They will need to document all of your losses if you want to have them covered.

You have a duty to mitigate your damage. Try to prevent mold growth, put a tarp on roof damage, etc. Failure to do so could result in consequences.

Take a ton of photos of your damage and make sure to photograph/video your mitigation efforts as proof that you are trying to prevent further damage.

Get receipts from mitigation companies, clean-up crews, contractors, etc. Be careful what you sign.
