Peak Hurricane Season

PCI-HurricaneExpo-300x250With Hurricane Michael slamming into the Florida Panhandle and other potential storms lingering in the Atlantic are clear reminders we are still not finished with hurricane season even in October.

PCI urges residents living in hurricane prone areas to stay informed as we go through the remainder of hurricane season. In addition to preparing your property, having an emergency kit, it’s also just as important to contact your insurance agent to make sure you have the right amount of coverage. PCI wants to remind residents along the coast that it only takes one storm to cause massive amounts of damage.

You may want to consider purchasing flood insurance through the National Flood Insurance Program. Heavy rains and storm surge can cause extensive flood damage in coastal and inland areas. Keep in mind there’s typically a 30-day waiting period between the date of purchase and when flood coverage takes effect.
