Hurricane Hermine left behind massive flooding and high-wind damage in its wake. An estimated 325,000 Florida customers lost power and as of Sept. 9, 31,000 still have not regained access to electricity, according to The Weather Channel. The Hill reported that after the Louisiana floods, out of the many homeowners who lost their homes in areas with the highest risk for flooding, only 42 percent were insured.
Unfortunately, too many people realize after a natural disaster that their coverage is lacking or even nonexistent for the specific weather event. Why is that? Much of this centers around homeowners thinking that the event won’t happen to them or the cost of that coverage is too much versus the probability of that event.
