Washington, D.C. has a long history with severe flooding, and when the next one strikes, many businesses forced to close down will never come back. Federal data suggests that only 40-60% of small companies manage to reopen after suffering damage during a disaster. Fires, floods, wind, mold and other emergencies cause significant losses and lengthy shutdowns that can prove challenging to overcome. Businesses with a disaster plan stand a much better chance of recovery.
