Any area of the country can be hit with a tornado. However, if you live in tornado alley—the states between the Dakotas and Texas—your business is especially prone to tornado damage.
In 2008, Parkersburg, Iowa was struck by a huge tornado. Some businesses were destroyed while many pulled through but ultimately lost power. These included a restaurant, grocery store, and bank. However, a pharmacy stayed open and rapidly filled prescriptions. Why? They had a backup generator.

Minimizing your downtime after severe weather can retain the trust of existing customers and gain the loyalty of new ones.
