June 1st is the official beginning of the Hurricane Season. So far the Atlantic it has been experiencing a relatively calm period with no tropical cyclone activity expected in the Atlantic during the next 48 hours. That can change drastically in the blink of an eye.
One of the most important facts that I inform our policyholders (and that many people are unaware of) is that a Flood Insurance Policy has a 30-Day Waiting Period from date of purchase until the policy goes into effect. Many people delay obtaining a plan until they hear of an impending storm and at that point it can be too late.
It is better to prepare now, and then get locked out. To learn more about your flooding risk and how to protect yourself and your business, visit the Federal Insurance and Mitigation Administration (NFIP) Web site, www.floodsmart.gov or call 1-800-427-2419.
