According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook there is a 70 percent likelihood of 13 to 20 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 7 to 11 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 3 to 6 major hurricanes (Category 3, 4 or 5; winds of 111 mph or higher). This exceeds the seasonal average of 12 named storms, 6 hurricanes and 3 major hurricanes.
With hurricane season officially under way, now is the time to make important decisions about insurance and understand the steps needed to help keep your family, business and property safe.
Before storm season is at its peak, Cowart Insurance recommends the following tips to help you get ready:
If a storm is imminent, consider taking the following precautions to help stay safe, including charging mobile devices, having chargers available and securing all outdoor objects or moving them inside.
“While most severe hurricanes form later in the season, waiting to prepare could leave you without a plan for managing your risks, which includes reviewing hazards around your home or business, taking steps to help minimize damage and having necessary insurance coverages,” said Marty Henry, Senior Vice President, Travelers Risk Control. “Planning for storm season is not something that should be taken lightly.”
