Hurricane Season

It Helps to Have a Plan

With less than 2 months to go, hurricane season is fast approaching its normal June 1 kick-off. Depending on what service your subscribe to, the prediction is for 19 named storms in 2022, with up to 9 Cat 3 hurricanes where winds exceed 111 miles per hour, and then the prediction is for 4 of the 9 to be major hurricanes.

Driven when the water ocean temperatures exceed 80 degrees, 2022 is predicted to be the 7th straight year of storms surging past the average number of storms.

So it helps to have a plan?

What happens if you lose power?

Do you have an alternate location if you should be advised to evacuate?

Have your generators and sump pumps been serviced?

Are you prepared for the heavy rain that usually comes with a storm?

A plan is the foundation of preventing storm damage, and the aggravation that includes loss of power, water in your basement and more.

Building a plan can only serve to control the outcome and then as a result you control the cost of insurance into the future.
