So small business owners worry suffering before Larry King -- hit the East Coast this is very having a tough 2011 between the weak economy important jobs climate.
So I spoke to a few different small businesses this week up and down the coast that we're still struggling with flooding.

The first business I spoke to with Paris based guardian -- -- it's in sheepshead -- -- it's right on the water.
So they said that Mayor Bloomberg really prepare them by giving adequate warnings ahead of time.
To prepare for the hurricanes they -- their restaurant with all sandbags and everything like that saying get flooding.
But they were still forced to shut down over the weekend.
-- banquet hall so they had to postpone a wedding and they lost like 50000 dollars in one weekend which is a huge sum of money especially in this economy.
That was definitely.
One business that was hit hard.
Another -- business I spoke to was this and drilling resort and spot and that's looking in the outer banks North Carolina.
And they had to evacuate all of their gas starting on Thursday before the storm.
So they couldn't re opening -- Tuesday.
So they lost an entire weekend's worth of gas over 250000.
Dollars in this economy again huge numbers -- -- losing.

I mean these small business owners really need to think I had read their policies before.
A disaster happens is you never know when it's gonna -- I can -- -- business we had Connecticut now son yesterday summing up how you can sort of protect.
Yourself financially and -- that this and that was one of the main thing that they kept emphasizing.
Get your insurance policy with plenty of time because some of them have waiting periods.
And and make sure that you see let you know what exactly covered and what isn't because most people don't realize that.
In the thirty cases flooding is not have to go through one of the international this -- for it won't -- it -- -- they won't.
