There has been a revolution in communications technology. Use it. Both conventional and unconventional means of staying connected – such as social media – should be utilized.

The telecommunications and IT industries have gotten several rude awakenings from mother nature in the form of hurricanes during the past decade. The two highest-profile storms, of course, were hurricanes Katrina and Sandy. Each year, plenty of lower-profile storms cause significant damage, as well.

The ideas here are a mix of general approaches and specific suggestions.
