How can I handle my finances in the event of a natural disaster?

If a natural disaster hits your area, banks and ATMs may not be operable for a few days. Therefore, you can protect your finances by paying bills that are due ahead of time so as to avoid late fees and other charges, withdrawing some cash to have on hand in the case of an emergency, and keeping a credit card available for emergency purchases. You should also take measures to store bills, contracts, and other important financial and legal documents in a safe place that you can easily access following a natural disaster.
