It looks like there may be some hurricanes coming to Florida after all. Weather models have noticed a switch on the Atlantic hurricane season and are showing multiple areas of possible development. The storm could possibly head over to the Caribbeans and affect Florida over the Labor Day Weekend. Meteorologist, Dan Kottlowski said, “There is the potential for two or three tropical features spinning over the Atlantic by the second weekend in September.” Regardless of whether or not this happens, everyone still has to take precautions because of what happened 2017 with Hurricane Irma. Many people were unprepared because no one was expecting it to come and cause the damage it did.
After seeing this year’s weather predictions, homeowners should learn from Hurricane Irma and make sure their policy includes the necessary coverage should these damages occur again. Be ready should a storm strike Florida and save your public adjuster’s number ahead of time, policyholders benefit from having an advocate on their side. A public adjuster will determine the viability of a claim, confirm policy coverages and makes sure policy requirements are met timely.
