With one month until the official start of the 2014 Atlantic hurricane season on June 1, FEMA is urging residents and businesses to prepare for the risks associated with hurricanes and tropical storms.
This includes preparing for flooding, which is the No. 1 source of loss associated with hurricanes. Independent agents should meet with their insureds to review their insurance and ensure they have adequate coverage in the event of a storm. Typically, clients face a 30-day waiting period from the date of purchasing flood insurance before a flood policy goes into effect. That means now is the best time to buy flood insurance. Is your agency ready to offer flood to all your property clients?
