Hurricane Preparedness

HOME PAGE

Be ready for hurricane season!

Hurricanes are massive storm systems that form over warm ocean waters and move toward land. Potential threats from hurricanes include powerful winds, heavy rainfall, storm surges, coastal and inland flooding, rip currents, tornadoes, and landslides. The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30. The Pacific hurricane season runs May 15 to November 30. Hurricanes:

  • Can happen along any U.S. coast or in any territory in the Atlantic or Pacific oceans.
  • Can affect areas more than 100 miles inland.
  • Are most active in September.

Today you can determine your personal hurricane risk and review/update insurance policies. As we continue to work through the challenges presented by COVID-19, it is also important that we remember to prepare for the 2020 hurricane season.
