10 YEARS WITHOUT A DIRECT HIT BY A HURRICANE IS UNPRECEDENTED IN FLORIDA. The long lines and unstocked shelves at Home Depot, the gas station and the grocery store during hurricane seasons in 2004, 2005 and 2006 may be a distant memory but now is not the time to let your guard down. That generator you bought in 2004 has been sitting under a pile of junk in your garage and probably won’t start, you only fill your propane tanks for your grill one at a time, and you take for granted that you will stop on the way home from work to pick up dinner at the grocery store is a sure sign of complacency and you are certainly not planning for a disaster.
It is not a matter of “if” we get a hurricane again; it is simply “when”. With a change in climate this year, there have been violent storms in Texas, drought in the northwest and unusually warm water in the gulf and Atlantic Ocean. All the conditions for an active storm season are present.
If Florida is hit by a hurricane you may not have power or running water or sewer for weeks. You need to be ready. Also, when you make your claim to your insurance company, it is likely that it will take some time before an adjuster is able to inspect your home. It can be incredibly frustrating when you can’t reach anyone at your insurer by phone as most adjusters are in the field preparing estimates and you don’t have the resources to start repairs even if you can find a contractor.
If you find yourself in this situation and you are not sure of your rights as a policyholder, call for a free consultation. McMenamin Law Group, P.A. (727) 372-7595
