So what does this mean for us who live in the gulf coast region? It means that we need to be prepared! Storm season, which starts June 1st, is just 9 short days away. It is important that you take every step to make sure you are ready. This means having a plan of action for your family if a storm hits and having the necessary supplies on hand. The National Hurricane Center has several resources to help you and your family prepare properly for hurricane season. Another factor to consider is whether you have the proper coverage for your home. Did you know that flooding is not covered by your home insurance policy? Therefore, if you experience any water damage from a storm, you will not be covered. Just a few inches of water can cause thousands of dollars in damage. Scary isn’t it? Why not have the peace of mind of being fully insured this storm season? Click here and let us give you a free, no-obligation quote or call us at 281-998-2500.
