Active Hurricane Season Continues
We are now stepping into the active part of 2014 hurricane season. Right now, the National Hurricane Center is predicting a 70% chance of a tropical cyclone formation in the next five days, with a current system several hundred miles off the Cape Verde Islands and is increasing.
PCI is urging residents living in hurricane prone areas to prepare now. 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 which is why now is the time to get prepared. These simple steps could save you time and money.
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 that there’s typically a 30-day waiting period between the date of purchase and when flood coverage takes effect.
