Hurricanes and Floods Are Coming
Hurricane season in the United States lasts from mid-May through November. One of our goals for your business is that you are educated on the many risks your business faces. One of the biggest risks you have is from hurricanes and flooding. While these events may not occur every year, when they do happen they can be devastating. Here is some valuable information regarding hurricane and flood insurance:
- If your business is close to a shoreline or high wind zone you will need to have a review of your insurance to make sure that you have proper coverage.
- There is a 30-day waiting period before a flood insurance policy takes effect, so don’t wait until the last minute to purchase it.
- Know these key terms–Hurricane Watch: Hurricane conditions are possible within the specified region. Hurricane Warning: Hurricane conditions are expected within a specified region.
- Did you know that your business insurance does not automatically cover flood damage? Insurance against floods must be obtained separately.
