This week is predicted to bring inconsistent temperatures plus a lot of rain, and I can’t help being reminded by these crazy weather patterns that hurricane season is on the horizon!
While hurricanes can occur at any time of the year, the official season begins June 1st and ends November 30th, only a month away. As always, our motto stands that it is better to be safe than sorry! Here are some important tips to help prepare you for the approaching hurricane season:
- Have a plan: From my own experience, you cannot over prepare for emergency scenarios and it is always better to have a plan than scrambling at the last minute! Plan an exit strategy and have enough supplies on hand to last for several days.
- Protect your home: Take precautions for high winds by boarding doors and windows and storing or tying down outside items. This will help protect your loved ones and prevent further avoidable damage.
- Verify your insurance policy: Ensure your home and valued possessions are protected from named storms, wind, and hail and confirm the deductible. A low monthly insurance premium may have a high deductible in the event of a claim.
