The Importance Of Disaster Management

Disasters come and go, and mighty are those who are able to shield themselves against them , or if not, move on from them, but apparently, there are those unfortunate ones that do not right away get over and still suffer far longer than the others, like small businesses for example. Unfortunately, the small businesses are usually the ones that are not very much prepared with these kinds of trials because of the lack of contingency plan, making them more vulnerable when all of these disasters try to conquer them.

The impact of this Hurricane Irma

Apparently, the hurricane Irma has damaged a lot of lives, from residential houses to businesses here and there. More than at least seventy people has lost their lives from the hurricane and the economy of the country has been struggling ever since the disaster happened, making the Goldman Sachs slash their own GDP growth. The impact of hurricane Irma was so strong that there have been some small businesses struggling to come past what has been done to them with regards to their resources and their people, making the whole tragedy a sad story for these small businesses.

For those businesses that have been unfortunate enough to be directly hit by this tremendous hurricane had also suffered a lot of floods, some structural damages on them, and some problems when it comes to electricity. Needless to say, even those people and businesses that were not directly affected by the hurricane still had to suffer a few problems here and there, making the whole impact of the hurricane really a horrific one.

Acquiring of emergency loans

Helpful people have also created some ways on how the ones affected can still continue their lives and live normally despite what has happened, like those emergency loans they had from a program based in Florida, but the thing is these loans were not enough to resurrect all of the revenue that was lost from the disastrous hurricane.

The federal government has also extended its hand to help those in need by creating some funding for the people who were greatly affected by the storm. Some of the businesses that were greatly devastated from Hurricane Irma had been given access to emergency loans and some economic loans from the US Small Business Administration. Every business that has ever been shattered and affected greatly by this tremendous hurricane can have their chance of accessing and being granted a loan if they make it possible to apply on or before the date of November nine.
