Updated: Hurricane Harvey has devastated coastal Texas, causing at least 38 deaths and damaging tens of thousands of homes. Lawyers, paralegals and law students who want to lend their skills to help those affected should check here for information on how to do so.

But this week we’d also like to ask you: Have you ever had to cope with a natural disaster? Are you dealing with the fallout from Harvey, or have you in the past had to cope with a devastating hurricane, flood, tornado or blizzard? What happened? What did you do? And what would you do differently to safeguard yourself and your family, your property—not to mention your law practice?

Answer in the comments.
