As Sandy descends, tips from Katrina survivors – CNN.com

Some useful tips, including:”
• When you make a video of your home for insurance purposes
beforehand, open drawers and closets so the contents are visible.

• Have a tire plug repair kit and pliers to pull out nails or screws, since debris in the roadway causes flats and leaks that are tough to repair when everything is closed.

• Bank safes and safe deposit boxes are not waterproof. During flooding, items left in them may be damaged and not accessible for weeks.
