PCI Highlights Consumer Education During Severe Weather Awareness Week, March 2-8
As part of Severe Weather Awareness Week
, PCI is encouraging consumer to not only be physically prepared for severe weather with an emergency plan, but also prepare financially by reviewing their insurance coverage. Keep in mind that insured losses due to severe thunderstorms and tornadoes cost more than $10 billion in 2013.
PCI urges homeowners, renters and business owners to be vigilant, conduct an annual review of their insurance policies, and have a discussion of coverage options with their insurance agent or company.
In May 2013 the Oklahoma City area was devastated by two massive tornadoes and Illinois and Indiana felt Mother Nature’s wrath with a massive tornado outbreak in November. These storms serve as a reminder that consumers should know the warning signals used in their community and be prepared to take cover when alerted.
This time of year severe weather particularly tornadoes can occur rapidly and with little warning, so advanced preparation is very important. Maintaining an emergency storm kit with a radio, flashlight, batteries and first-aid items is the first step in preparation. Being financially prepared to weather the storm is next in line.
PCI's Tornado Headquarters offers vital information for those affected by tornadoes, as well as preparedness tips for those living in tornado-prone areas.
