When Hurricane Harvey left its path of devastation across Texas and the neighboring states, one of the lesser known side effects was all of the cars that were left behind. An estimated 1 million cars were completely destroyed in the 2017 disaster — more than in any other weather event in American history. While Harvey was indeed a “100-year storm”, it highlighted the power and dangers of storm-related flooding that can happen anywhere.
If you are a driver, knowing what to do when a disaster is looming is critical. Your vehicle could be an invaluable tool to get you to safety before the disaster strikes — or it could turn into a violent projectile. You need to know how to protect your car and how to get proper payment for any damages that occurred.
