June marks the beginning of hurricane season, and forecasters are already predicting an above average season of activity. Last year’s hurricane season was one of the most active in years, and one of them (Hurricane Hermine) managed to make landfall in Tallahassee before being followed by Hurricane Matthew a month later. The latter managed to cause extensive damage, resulting in billions of dollars worth of property insurance claims.
Don’t wait until the last minute to start making preparations. With hurricanes, it never hurts to be proactive. Make sure your shutters are in good working order, have some spare batteries available, and have plenty of non-perishable goods so you can avoid the sudden rush in the event a hurricane does in fact head to South Florida.
As insurance rates continue to rise in 2017 because of ongoing claims abuses, it’s wise to be proactive and take the necessary measures to reduce the possibility or extent of damage to your property.
