Stay Safe During Hurricane Season:
1. Hurricanes can bring heavy rains, high winds and storm surges. These result in tides swelling and high water. And, big waves can erode natural barriers, leaving coasts more vulnerable to future storms and flooding.
2. During a hurricane, if the ground can’t absorb rainwater fast enough or storm drains can’t handle the runoff, rain can lead to flash floods.
3.There are a variety of hidden risks that can put your house in danger of flooding, like new housing developments or changes in weather patterns. Flood insurance is a surefire way to protect your home, even when it doesn’t face the obvious risks for flooding.
4.Most homeowners and renters insurance policies do not cover flood damage, and flood insurance policies don’t automatically renew.
