Late Summer Tornadoes are an Ever-Present Threat; APCIA Says be Prepared for Severe Weather

Although tornado activity during the past few months has been a little below average, events such as Hurricane Dorian have spawned damage producing storms. Recent tornadoes in Sioux Falls and other locations remind us that tornadoes occur at anytime and anywhere in the U.S.

APCIA urges residents across the country to stay alert and be prepared to take cover from severe weather. Tornadoes can develop quickly, which means advanced preparation is essential.

The good news is that most tornado, windstorm, hail and similar severe weather-related losses are covered either by automobile, homeowners, renters or commercial insurance policies. Whenever severe weather occurs insurance adjusters move quickly to help storm victims put their lives back together.

To help everyone prepare for severe weather, APCIA urges homeowners, renters, and business owners to conduct an annual review of their insurance policies and have a discussion of coverage options with their insurance agent or company.

APCIA's Tornado Headquarters offers vital information for those impacted by tornadoes, as well as preparedness tips for those living in tornado-prone areas. Follow us on Twitter @TeamAPCIA and use #becovered as we continue to provide tips on what to do before and after a tornado.
