  2. Review your estate planning documents. If your estate plan no longer meets your current intent, you should meet with an estate planning attorney to update your documents after the storm has passed.
  3. Attorney Randall Baskin

    Make sure that any original documents are kept in a dry, safe place until the storm has passed.
