Record-Setting Hurricane Season is Not Over; PCI Says Stay Vigilant
Hurricane Response Continues in the Gulf States

With more than a month to go before the official end of hurricane season, PCI is urging coastal residents to avoid “storm fatigue” and remain fully prepared for severe weather.

During this record-setting hurricane season, the insurance industry has worked closely with millions of policyholders to help them recover and regain a sense of normalcy. As the rebuilding continues, PCI urges anyone affected by the storms to be alert for scams or other fraudulent activity and use caution when hiring a contractor for repairs. Coastal residents not impacted by the recent storms should talk with their insurance agent or company to do a comprehensive review of their insurance policies and make sure they understand their coverage. A key step includes purchasing flood insurance, which is not included in standard homeowners policies.

PCI has a wide range of resources available to help homeowners and business prepare for the remaining months of hurricane season.

PCI reminds everyone to educate themselves about their insurance protection and how it works. Follow us on Twitter @PCIAA and use #HurricanePrep to keep the conversation going.
