Where does the natural disaster preparedness of small businesses stack up? How ready are they and what do they need to do to ensure they don't loose everything in the next Hurricane Sandy?

These days, the world is being hit with more and more natural disasters every year: from tsunamis to earthquakes. With such volatile weather conditions becoming the norm, it's important small businesses take a few moments to ensure their natural disaster preparedness is optimal.

Unfortunately, according to this infographic 74% of businesses do not have a recovery plan. Seventy one percent don't have a back up generator either, which means that if the lights go out, they stay out. Having a generator would be a good step for most businesses to ensure they can remain open during bad times.
