First Hurricane of 2014 Season Hits the North Carolina Coast
Media Center | PCI At Work
While Hurricane Arthur didn’t cause massive amounts of destruction, flooding and winds exceeding 100 mph have left some residents and businesses along North Carolina’s coast with clean-up work to do and repairs to make.
Arthur is the first hurricane to hit the Carolina coast this early in the season and first Category 2 storm to make U.S. landfall since Hurricane Ike in 2008. It highlights that we have a long time before the 2014 hurricane season is over. 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 if you haven’t already.
It’s also a good idea to make sure you have an emergency plan in place, know your evacuation route, and have your insurer or agent’s phone numbers on hand.
Have a conversation with your insurer or agent to make sure you’re adequately covered and consider purchasing flood insurance. Remember it takes 30 days for flood insurance to become effective.
