Stay Alert; Fall Tornado Season is Here

We are now entering what many forecasters call “second” tornado season. Due to the transitional weather many experts say the second half of October and November can lead to severe weather and even several tornado outbreaks.

It’s important to watch for changing weather especially during this time of the year. PCI urges you to have an emergency plan in place, emergency kit, and make sure your insurance policy is up to date.

While insurers will be in the field to help residents impacted by whatever storms may pop up this Fall, it’s important to take steps now to prepare. Advanced preparation could save lives and thousands of dollars and time in the recovery process.

It’s important to note, that most tornado, windstorm, hail and similar severe weather-related losses are covered by homeowners, renters, commercial or automobile insurance policies. However, it’s still a good idea to review your insurance coverage so you understand what is covered and the steps you need to take in the wake of a disaster.

PCI'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 @PCIAA use #becovered as we continue to provide tips on what to do before and after a tornado.
