The threat of hurricanes is very real for Florida during the six-month-long Atlantic hurricane season, which runs from June 1 until November 30. The peak of hurricane season occurs between mid-August and late October when the waters in the equatorial Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico have warmed enough to help support the development of tropical waves.

In order to be prepared for these times make sure you have the right coverage for your home including flood insurance. Some homeowners policies provide additional living expense (ALE) coverage, which helps pay for expenses incurred because your home has been deemed unlivable due to a covered loss. ALE provides coverage for increased costs over your normal expenses if a covered loss makes your home unlivable. This can include expenses for food, a place to live, or other costs associated with maintaining your household. Call us today to find out if you have this coverage.

Another thing is checking the lists to help you prepare for the upcoming hurricane season. The Florida Department of Emergency Management has come up with an interactive website to help you tailor these lists to your own household or business needs. Please take the time to go through the tool and make sure you’re prepared.
