Knowledge Monday – Preparing for Hurricane Season
With 2020 Hurricane season right around the corner, it is critical that property owners and business owners prepare for what seems to be an active hurricane season. As a property and business owner, you should be aware that hurricane season starts on June 1 and ends on November 30. Throughout these months, insurance coverage will skyrocket, thus it is important that your business and property are protected with insurance policies before.
Insurance policies provide homeowners and business owners the peace of mind of knowing that they will have insurance coverage if they suffer any hurricane damage. For homeowners and business owners that already have insurance policies, you should confirm:
1. Your insurance policy is currently active and will remain active during hurricane season;
2. Your insurance policy provides coverage for Hurricane damage; and
3. Your insurance policy hurricane deductible.
The latest forecast predicts an active hurricane season, with up to 16 tropical storms, 8 of which will become hurricanes and 4 of which will become major hurricanes. The top hurricane forecasters anticipate that 2020 will have above average probability for major hurricanes making landfall along the continental United States.
With Hurricane Season soon being coupled with COVID-19, it is important that families plan ahead with insurance policies as well as shelter planning. The most important thing heading into Hurricane Season is to keep yourself and your family safe.
