Businesses are just as likely to suffer hurricane-related damages or power outages as are private homes. Businesses, however, also carry the risk of lost productivity due to hurricane damage, or to the absence of key employees who may not be able to make it back to the office for several days after a storm has passed.
The LUS Hurricane Handbook offers information specifically for hurricanes, but much of the information could be applied to any natural disaster emergency.
