With hurricane season upon us, now is an essential time to assess or reassess individual risk for your home. If you reside in Florida, you live in a flood zone, and yearly hurricanes simply become part of your way of life.
At the Moody Agency, we specialize in individual homeowners insurance, with hurricane and flood plan options to help protect your family from the dangers of the season. Today we would like to take a moment to highlight a few important and practical resources available to you on the web.
1) Create an Emergency Supply Kit: Supply kits can either be bought as a package or assembled individually, to suit your personal needs. Essential items to include are fresh water, non-perishable foods, a battery- or hand-powered radio, first aid and other essential medical supplies, flashlights, and copies of your important documents such as prescriptions, personal identification, and tax records.
2) Have a Plan
: When trouble hits and stress is at its highest, decision making can be greatly eased if you already know where you going and what you are doing. Make a family emergency plan
, have an established evacuation plan
, and prepare for telecommunication difficulties.
In the face of stormy weather, it is essential to know your flood and hurricane liabilities. To help you assess your situation, the government website Flood Smart
has provided a flood risk tool to help you understand your property's flood risk: One-Step Flood Risk Profile
