It’s human nature to become accustomed to watches and warnings if you live in an area that experiences such warnings every year. Resist the tendency to take these too lightly. Every storm is different, and a complex number of factors can either increase or decrease any storm’s intensity quickly. Review the experiences of others to see how your carrier handled similar claims in the past, and above all, stay safe.
Ms. Worters noted that standard homeowner policies don’t cover damage from floodwaters, even if it is caused by a hurricane’s storm surge. Homeowners must buy separate flood coverage, either through the National Flood Insurance Program or from private companies. There is often a waiting period (30 days, in the case of federal flood insurance) before flood policies take effect. Homeowners who want coverage beyond a standard flood policy can also consider extra insurance, available from excess or surplus lines insurers.
Clearsurance found that 42 percent of the participants have not taken any steps to check their coverage. So if nearly 90 percent of the participants expressed concern a natural disaster could hit their area, why are so many failing to ensure that they are properly protected? At least to some degree, policyholders feel they are already properly covered in the event of a natural disaster. Clearsurance found that 65 percent of participants felt they had sufficient coverage.
