Once the storm subsides in South Florida, it may be time to consider the aftermath.
Attorney and author Scott Mager is considered one of the foremost Natural Disaster Insurance Experts, and one of the founding contributors to Storm Help Team. He has lived through numerous devastating hurricanes and other storm events, and also spent thousands of hours in Florida, as well as New York and other locations.
