Helpful Hurricane Prep Tips

July 27, 2017

Hurricane season is June 1 through November 30.  Are you prepared?  In this blog, we will discuss flood insurance, evacuation zones, and emergency kits.


Flood Insurance

The region we live in is called Tidewater & it definitely lives up to the name. Most people are not aware that their renter’s or homeowner’s insurance policies do not cover damage caused by rising water.  Did you know that there is also a 30-day waiting period on flood insurance policies?  Don’t wait until something like Hurricane Matthew happens to find out!  Call us to review the coverage on your policy today.
