As the 2023 Hurricane Season Approaches, Make Sure You Are Prepared
Hurricanes can be incredibly destructive, bringing heavy rainfall and winds that lead to storm surges, floods, fallen trees, and extensive damage to buildings and vehicles.
According to Tropical Storm Risk, there are expected to be 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes, and 2 intense hurricanes during the upcoming hurricane season from June 1 to November 30. It's important to note that flood losses are usually not covered under standard insurance policies. Therefore, it's highly recommended that individuals protect themselves against flood damage by obtaining a flood policy. It's worth noting that a flood policy takes about 30 days to go into effect, so it's essential to take action and secure coverage as soon as possible. As part of our Hurricane Preparedness efforts, we'd like to offer some tips to help safeguard your property this upcoming season.
Here are some steps you can take before a hurricane strikes:
-Document your belongings
-Ready your car for evacuation
-Fill your bathtub with water
-Develop a disaster plan
-Secure your home or business
