Hurricane preparation is frequently on the minds of Floridians as hurricanes are often racing towards our shoreline. When under a hurricane warning or hurricane/tropical storm watch, the forecast track may put us all in peril as the looming storms threaten property damage, mass power outages and communications breakdowns.
Hurricane preparation prior to a storm arriving.
Clear the immediate area of debris that could potentially become airborne. Install hurricane shutters, and take photographs to illustrate the quality of your property prior to damage caused by a storm. Safeguard and prepare beforehand when the threat of a disastrous storm is imminent.
In the wake of a storm’s passing, if property damage has occurred:
- Take immediate steps to keep additional loss from happening.
- Take photographs evidencing the property damage.
- Save all receipts and keep track of all expenses associated with securing the property from additional damage.
- Immediately report the loss to your agent, or if communications and electricity are unavailable, report directly to the insurer.
