MILWAUKEE - Severe weather can happen at anytime and anywhere. All of a sudden your home is destroyed and your belongings are gone.

There are ways to prepare yourself for the challlenge of rebuilding your home and restarting your life.

"First and foremost you need to have a good understanding of what your insurance policy does and does not cover," said Dan Wolfgram of R&R Insurance. "Most standard homeowners' policies cover hail and tornado damage."

It's imperative to have a relationship with your agent, according to Wolfgram. He also suggested taking inventory of everything.

"Take pictures or video of all your possessions," he said. "It makes it really easy to adjust a claim."

"If your agent has done a good job for you, you should be fine."
